A little elf named Tom is so curious about Santa's trip that he climbs aboard Santa's sleigh and nestles himself in between the presents. Tom soon discovers that he's not alone--his little puppy came along, too. They're having such fun until Tom falls out of the sleigh. How will they ever get home? With a little generosity, a little bit of luck, and jolly old Santa.
"The snowy, starlit views of Santa's sleigh in flight are gorgeous examples of watercolor at its best."- "Kirkus Reviews "on "Tom the Christmas Elf"
