Additional Notes

From The Publisher*
Shortlisted for Governor General's Award for Children's Literature

Now an animated holiday special on Teletoon!

Santa didn't make many mistakes. But he made a big one when he asked what Anton Stingley wanted for Christmas. . .

. . . Anton's list was sixteen pages long.

On Christmas morning, there was one thing under the Stingley's tree. It was an orange.

Anton was not pleased. He and his lawyer decided to sue Santa Claus. Everyone came. It was the trial of the century. But Santa Claus, alias Saint Nick, Kris Kringle, Father Christmas, Pere Noel - has a surprise up the sleeve of his old blue suit.

Anton was stunned. What had he done?

With the sparkle and snap of a holiday cracker, Don Gilmor and Marie-Louise Gay deliver The Christmas Orange, a witty, fun filled treat for all.
