So, maybe your brother lost his job this year, and his kids are having trouble coping with, or even understanding, the new changes in their life. Looks like it's time for their favorite book-loving uncle to come to the rescue with the gift of clarity.

In this book, Muckle, one of the younger elves, has developed a new way to deliver toys, and it looks like there is no place for St. Nick in this new world order. We are still waiting for our copy to arrive in the mail, but we are hoping for a scene where Santa dives head first into a bottle of Wild Turkey and starts screaming at Mrs. Claus about how "these days nobody has any goddamn loyalty."
