Russell Hicks and Matt Cubberly

illustrated by Ryley Garcia

In the good old days, the elves made toys by hand at Santa's workshop, but times have changed. The North Pole modernized, and Santa.com was born. Now, Christmas wishes are fulfilled by robotic candy cane arms and delivered by peppermint drones . . . until Cyber Scrooge hacks the system! Little Yo-Yo the elf thinks they still have a chance to save Christmas, but can the reindeer still fly? And more importantly, will Santa come out of retirement?

A modern tale packed with Christmas spirit and holiday humor, Santa.com is sure to be your family's favorite new Christmas story.
