    Wherever he goes, Santa is recognised and he's beginning to find it a struggle. All he wants is a break away from Christmas but whether he's in Paris, Sydney or at the Great Wall of China, someone always recognises him. That's a problem when you're one of the most famous people in the world...

    He can't even do his hobbies or eat his lunch without getting interrupted for a photograph. This heart-warming and funny hardback has a smart message about the perils of being famous and even comes with a pull-out photo frame so your children can see themselves in one of Santa's festive selfies.
