Comments:
A voyage with Santa Claus as captain, a jolly crew, and a quest to find new and unusual Christmas presents, combine to tell a merry tale of discovery, fun, and adventures. Ruth Plumly Thompson's writing and John R. Neill's illustrations come together at their magical best. Santa sets out every year to find new toys for the children of the world -- and this year, he's going by boat! He finds all kinds of adventures and playthings, but can he get back to the North Pole in time for the holidays? Thompson and Neill’s only non-Oz collaboration.
