When a K-pop boy band shows up to “save Christmas,” it’s the last straw!

Santa Claus may be getting older, achier, more forgetful over the years, but he is determined to prove to the world he can still do his job without anyone’s help.
“On Dasher, on Dancer, on Cupid, on Comet, I must show the world that Santa’s still got it!”
Award-winning filmmaker Kevin Maher and New Yorker cartoonist Joe Dator have given the timeless tale of saving Christmas a clever twist when Santa decides to save the day himself this year. What follows is a laugh-out-loud adventure about refusing help.

Will old Saint Nick discover the true meaning of Christmas? Or will he ruin everyone’s holiday because he’s too stubborn to admit when he’s wrong?

“Heaps of holiday fun!” —Jeff Kinney, author of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series

“A fun, funny read for all ages, this book is the perfect soothing tonic for a stressful holiday season.” —Jennie Egerdie, author of Frog and Toad Are Doing Their Best

“The brilliance of Santa Doesn’t Need Your Help is how Maher and Dator breathe humanity and humor into the well-worn Santa Claus icon using fun pop tropes, clever rhymes, and beautiful illustrations. Be sure to include it into your holiday season bedtime reading rotation!” —Dan Yaccarino, author and illustrator of The Longest Storm
