Description

This is a classically magical Christmas book based on the wonderful idea that Santa has a special watch that slows down time so he can deliver all his presents around the world. It has everything from the pathos of Charles Dickens's Tiny Tim (in this case the deaf boy who sacrifices his precious hearing aid to help fix Santa's watch), the intrigue of the watchmaker racing to meet a special Christmas deadline, and the snow-filled Christmas world of books like THE POLAR EXPRESS.
