The Year Without a Santa Claus - Phyllis McGinley, Gennadii Spirin, John Manders
Santa is tired and decides to take a vacation from delivering presents on Christmas one year. All the children cry, except for one boy who says Santa deserves a break and it is their turn to give him a Merry Christmas.It was a fun book. I read this because it is the book the classic Christmas cartoon The Year Without a Santa Claus is based on and it is one of my favorite cartoons to watch around Christmas. The book was enjoyable, but I still like the cartoon better.
