520 Offering a fresh twist on Kris Kringle, a clever yet
heartfelt book that tells the story of a black Santa, his
white husband, and their life in the North Pole. Everyone
knows that Santa Claus is jolly, but in Santa's Husband,
this cherished symbol of the holiday season is also black
and gay, and married to an equally cheery man. In this
witty and sweet illustrated Christmas tale, humor writer
Daniel Kibblesmith introduces us to Mr. and Mr. Claus, and
gives us a glimpse of their lives together. We see the
Clauses sitting by the fire at their cozy North Pole home,
vacationing at the beach, having an occasional
disagreement, celebrating their wedding day, and
comforting each other when some loudmouth people on
television angrily dispute Santa's appearance and
lifestyle. In the weeks before Christmas, Santa's husband
helps with all the pre-Christmas work, from double-
checking lists, to feeding the reindeer (organic gluten-
free grains, of course), to negotiating labor disputes
with the restive workshop elves. At the height of toy-
making season, he even fills in for his busy hubby at the
mall to ensure every child can meet the Big Guy in the red
suit, and give him their wish list. As this charming book
reminds us, Santa Claus can come in all shapes and colors
and sizes-just like the children and families he visits
all over the world each Christmas eve. Featuring beautiful
watercolor pictures drawn by artist AP Quach, Santa's
Husband is a delightful gift for readers of all ages.
