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.
