Santa Claus, that jolly old outsourcer, enlists his primo Pancho to deliver presents along the Texas-Mexico border. Pancho's young nephew Vincente stows away in the present sack, hoping to get a taste of the gift-giving action. All Christmas Eve, they work their magic, not letting rain or cloudy skies or wire fences keep them from covering every inch of their newly assigned territory. A native of the Rio Grande Valley, Xavier Garza is a prolific author, artist, teacher, and storyteller whose work is a lively documentation of life, dreams, superstitions, and heroes in the bigger-than-life world of south Texas. His book Maximilian & the Mystery of the Guardian Angel was a Pura Belpr Author Honor Book in 2012.
