The Runaway Santa: A Christmas Adventure Story
by Anne Margaret Lewis (Author), Aaron Zenz (Illustrator)
Once there was a jolly Santa who wanted to leave the North Pole on a worldwide vacation! He decides he wants to visit Mount Rushmore and see the stone faces of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt. Then he’ll ski the silky slopes of the Swiss Alps. And after that, he’ll ride an elephant in South Africa on a safari. Santa is eager for a new adventure, but Mrs. Claus isn’t so sure he’s ready just yet. Before he takes off, she’s going to make sure he’s got his rock climbing gear. And his skis, and his hat. He must be ready!
It isn’t long before Santa realizes that maybe his adventure would be more fun with a friend. Mrs. Claus is clearly an expert adventurer herself, and so the two take off together on a runaway adventure. They have a little time before Christmas, after all, and everybody needs a break sometimes!

The Runaway Santa by Anne Margaret Lewis is such a fun book! My kids absolutely loved this book and it definitely answers the question of what Santa doesn't when it isn't Christmas time. Santa decides to go on an adventure so Mrs. Clause makes sure to pack everything he needs. Santa realizes his adventure would be more fun with a friend so Santa invites Mrs. Clause along for the adventure. I love the illustrations on every page and found Mrs. Clause and Santa to be a very cute couple. The Runaway Santa by Anne Margaret Lewis is a wonderful book and my kids adore it!
