ROCK STAR SANTA is available again. I received the Scholastic "Winter Gift Books" Catalog last Thursday. It's on the bottom right hand corner of the first page as part of a Holiday Picture Book Pack.

This year it will also be sold in the December "See Saw" (Pre-K to 1st grade) flyer and the "Lucky" (2nd -3rd grade) flyer and teachers and librarians can order it directly from the Education & Library Division of Scholastic.

We're moving up. Maybe next year it will go to the trade division.

If you couldn't find it last year, now's your chance. Just contact a Pre-K or elementary teacher who runs a Scholastic Book Club.

Ho! Ho! Ho!

Rock the house with Rock Star Santa! If you want him to visit your school or library just contact me here at the Storyteller's Scroll. I'll pass the message on by the Christmas courier. (Me)

Thanks for your support.
