With Christ­mas right around the cor­ner, Ge­orgie is dis­heart­ened to learn that rough times mean Santa may not be able to de­liver the ice skates he has been wish­ing for, in The Santa Thief. Set in small-town Penn­syl­va­nia circa 1920, the il­lus­tra­tions from Lau­ren Gal­le­gos are rem­i­nis­cent of Nor­man Rock­well’s De­pres­sion-era por­traits, with snowy woods and cozy robe-clad morn­ings. Ge­orgie re­gains his hol­i­day spirit with a touch­ing sur­prise for his hard­work­ing par­ents.
