Tanta Klaus (Rhymes with Mouse) is an enduring new Christmas legend beautifully told in poetry and pictures.
Written by Peter G. Blank
Illustrated by Johnny Stiff

From the dust jacket: "Some may question whether or not this Tanta Klaus is real...He is more than what is Christmas...you see, he is how Christmas makes us feel. He lives in a tiny hatbox, in a tiny little house...and once a year, when the nights are as long as they can be, he sets out to make sure that the spirit of Christmas is kept burning bright - in every home, in every heart, in every part of the world. Beyond the gifts, the greetings, and all the trappings of the holiday, this joyous little creature reminds us that the true meaning of Christmas exists within our hearts...and in the hope that the season brings.
