A Note from Fatty About Today’s Guest Post: Today’s story is the second in the Christmas story series written and illustrated by my ten-year-old twins. Today’s is by Katie, and if you take a look at yesterday’s story, you can tell there was a little bit of twin-power collaboration going on behind the scenes.
Did You Know Santa Claus Is Really a Goat?
by Katie Nelson
Now all you people who read this, young and old, there is one story I know you’ve all been told. Yes, the story of Santa Claus and his flying reindeer, but there’s one part of the story you probably thought you wouldn’t hear, the part about Santa really being a Goat!
Do you also believe that Santa flies with magic reindeer? Well, really he flies with the sheep that you count to fall asleep! That is why it’s so hard to sleep every Christmas Eve night, Santa has borrowed all your sleep sheep!
As for his little bitty elves, well, they really are bitty, and they really are elves, but instead of little, tiny magic humans, they are little, tiny, magic penguins. In fact they’re so small (only 22 inches tall!) the only way to reach a table is to sit on a beach ball!
And since penguins have no thumbs (they’re only good for making toys and drums) Santa Claus has polar bears wrap the presents for the good girls and boys!
[Note from Fatty: In the print version of this book, this spread opens up to have a pop-out flying sheep. I'm not a great photographer and so didn't capture the awesome effect as well as I'd have liked. Still, you get the idea.]
