Catalog Record | Enlarge Image | Adopt-a-Book Home

Also issued under the title Three Christmas Boxes, this is another McLoughlin Brothers Santa spinoff. The book relates the tale of three boys being observed by the jolly elf. He tailors his gifts (the boxes) according to their behavior, with some touching results.  The chromolithographed cover shows Santa about to land nimbly in a lit (!) fireplace with gifts in hand. 

Adopted by Susan and Matthew Allen in memory of Martha Allen Parady, who loved all things Christmas, especially giving gifts
