Unpaginated, 11 1/4" H. Charmingly illustrated throughout in color and b&w. A riff on the classic 19th century Christmas poem. "Take the classic story of jolly old St. Nicholas, place it in a Louisiana bayou setting, dress Santa Claus in muskrat 'from his head to his toes', pile his skiff high with toys, and hitch it to eight friendly alligators. The result is this delightful new version of an old and familiar tale. It is Christmas on the bayou." Very light wear at the top/bottom of the spine and at the corners of the boards. Dust jacket has several small edge tears archivally taped, light wear and tiny chips at the top/bottom of the spine and flap-folds.
