Description

Porcupine and his Canadian friends are back in this companion to the #1 National Bestseller A Porcupine in a Pine Tree!

When Sasquatch upsets Santa's sleigh, everyone gets the wrong presents. But that doesn't stop them from having a great time!

Join in the merriment and mayhem as a wild (and familiar) cast of Canadian characters take over the Christmas holidays once again.

With the same jolly rhymes and infectious energy that made A Porcupine in a Pine Tree an instant classic, this Canadian twist on "Jingle Bells" is the must-have, must-give book for the holidays.
