What did Santa use to pull his sleigh before he had reindeer? Disaurs! Santa Claus reminisces about the good old days when disaurs pulled his sleigh. The Tyransaurus rex wouldn't stop licking Santa, the Pterosaurs flew too high, and the Maiasauras ate presents when one was looking! Santa thinks the reindeer are a treasure. But when he and his old disaur pals look in on a little girl who's sleeping, he admits that sometimes he misses the good old days. Children will love meeting Santa's prehistoric friends in Jerry Pallotta's silly and sweet new classic. Beautifully illustrated by Howard McWilliam, DINOSAUR CHRISTMAS is a Christmas like other!
