Santa is in a funk because he has stopped believing in Harold, maybe all children! He doesn't understand how the Harold he saw last year could possibly be the same child he originally became acquainted with. Maybe Harold's parents are just pretending in order to get more presents? Harold is starting to feel the same way about Santa. On Christmas Eve, they both devise a plan to determine once and for all if the other is actually real.

It is so sad when a child stops believing in Santa. I remember one Christmas eve seeing my dad eating the cookies and drinking the milk meant for Santa. At first I was angry that he would do that to Santa, but then I saw him put a gift in my stocking. When I saw that wrapping paper in the morning, I read that it was front Santa...and the magic of Santa ended. In this picture book, Santa is wondering if Harold is real. I really love the humour and story in this book, and the illustrations are amazing! This is a great book to add to your holiday collection.

A great twist on the dilemma of questioning Santa's existence, with delightful illustrations and a lot of humor and heart.

Harold is starting to question the existence of Santa Claus. But, you know what, Santa is skeptical if Harold is real. A charming story for young readers who are on that verge of belief. Illustrations of a very round Santa are particularly endearing.
