This story tells the tale of Santa Boy, Mr. and Mrs. Claus’ new baby boy who brings joy to to the elves and reindeer at the North Pole and is known for the “bells on his toes.”  

But, when one snowy day, he and his friend the squirrel, “Bushy,” get lost in a snowstorm, the elves and Santa head out to find Santa Boy, worried that he hasn’t come back.  He is found, hiding in a cave, when they hear, through the hard and strong snowstorm, the sound of Santa Boy’s jingle toes and the Elves sing:

"Santa Boy got lost and nearly froze, but was found by the sound of his Jingle Toes.  Away with the sleigh and Santa he'll go, you will know him by the sound of his Jingle Toes."

This story ends with an uplifting, catchy song about the boy with the jingle toes and will warm the hearts of children and parents alike as they imagine life at the North Pole with Santa and his family.

As a child I loved the story, Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer and wondered why Santa and Mrs. Claus never had children. I thought that a Santa child would be a good way to bring new life to the Santa Story. Thus the story Santa Boy began and evolved over thirty-five years! Since there was a song for Rudolph, I wrote one that follows the story line for Santa Boy. Upon becoming a grandfather I dug out my treasured manuscript, and with the help of my daughter, Caroline, who enjoyed the story when she was a child, revived it. My daughter Christine sings the Santa Boy song.
