Go ape for Christmas! All is calm as the animals dream and the keeper decorates the zoo exhibits on Christmas Eve . . . but not for long! More rapid than cheetahs, a team of flying zebras hauling a sleigh lands on top of the souvenir shop, revealing Santa’s newest helper: Oranga-Claus! The hairy old ape knows just what all the lions, penguins, llamas, kangaroos, hippopotamuses, and other zoo animals want in their stockings for Christmas-and what the keeper wants, too! This hilariously fractured retelling of Clement C. Moore’s classic poem features delightful illustrations filled with monkeyshines on every page. This year you’ll be saying, "Merry Christmas to all, and ooka moo moo la goo!"
