As St. Nick is delivering his toys on Christmas, a strange object pops into sight & crash-lands next to him. It\'s Venick from Venus, a strange purple creature with long purple hair! Venick is dressed exactly like St. Nick and tells him that while delivering his own toys on Venus, he tripped on a star and tumbled from near to afar, ending up lost here on Earth. Fearing he will not be able to complete his task, he asks our Santa for help. When St. Nick says, yes, a whole new world of Christmas opens up to them. Follow St. Nick and Venick as they travel through space and meet all the Space Nicks! It\'s an adventure you won\'t forget and reminds you whenever you\'re lost: \"Look to the sky, to the heavens above, There are billions of stars that sparkle with love!\"

Saint Nick and the Space Nicks is a light hearted, rhyming Christmas
story with terrific color illustrations, appropriate for pre-schoolers.
In Mears' active imagination, Christmas is everywhere in space - and
each planet has its own Space Nick. This is a goofy story that kids
will certainly enjoy, but the illustrations are the best part of the
book. The colors are bright and the wide variety of space creatures -
versions of Santas and reindeer - are so clever.
Berkshire Record, 11/26 - 12/2
St. Nick goes intergalactical....a hypothetical collaboration between
Clement Clarke Moore, who wrote 'The Night Before Christmas', and the
incomparable Dr. Suess.

| ||Hi; I just happened to wake up about 2:30a.m. on Thursday eve and happened to catch the video. What an woderful children's story. I'm 53 and really enjoyed it. I was wondering if I could order the video or DVD. What a brillant little story. My Father and I just recently went to see the Polar Express, unaware of such a story, immediately both of us fell in love with the movie. I can't wait for my Father to see this one. Thanks for a delightful story. Greg|
