Description

See below for English description.

Dès sa naissance, le petit Santa est déjà un enfant particulier. Il a une petite bedaine et une grosse voix, il ne porte que du rouge et, son plus grand plaisir consiste à redistribuer les cadeaux qu'il reçoit. À bien y penser, ce petit garçon était destiné à devenir le personnage préféré des enfants pendant le temps des fêtes!
 

Santa's parents think their little one is absolutely wonderful, even though he has a booming voice instead of a baby's gurgle, loves to stand in front of the freezer, gives his birthday presents away, trains his hamsters to pull a matchbox sleigh . . . and has an unusual interest in chimneys. Bailey has written an adorably funny portrait of an oddball kid who fulfills his destiny - and two very proud parents.

Original title: When Santa Was a Baby
