It is so sad when a child stops believing in Santa. I remember one Christmas eve seeing my dad eating the cookies and drinking the milk meant for Santa. At first I was angry that he would do that to Santa, but then I saw him put a gift in my stocking. When I saw that wrapping paper in the morning, I read that it was front Santa...and the magic of Santa ended. In this picture book, Santa is wondering if Harold is real. I really love the humour and story in this book, and the illustrations are amazing! This is a great book to add to your holiday collection.

A great twist on the dilemma of questioning Santa's existence, with delightful illustrations and a lot of humor and heart.

Harold is starting to question the existence of Santa Claus. But, you know what, Santa is skeptical if Harold is real. A charming story for young readers who are on that verge of belief. Illustrations of a very round Santa are particularly endearing.
