schema:description"Santa tries his hand at many jobs before finding the perfect job as the world's greatest gift giver. A humorous picture book that traces Santa's career from chimney sweep to becoming a fixture at Christmas. If you think Santa Claus came into the world sporting a red suit and a white beard, think again. Santa wasn't always the jolly, overweight, gift-giving fellow that we now know and love. He tried his hand at all sorts of different jobs, including postal worker, zookeeper, circus performer, and even chimney sweep, but each of these presented a problem that got in his way. It wasn't until he was lucky enough to meet a friendly bunch of elves that Santa found his true calling ... and the job of his dreams. Stephen Krensky's understated text and S.D. Schindler's charming illustrations come together to create an imaginative and funny tale that proves even the best of us have to try, try again."@en
