Publisher's Description

Inspired by the famous Christmas poem, "The Night Before Christmas," this picture book about a visit from "the Santa of Sailors" is perfect for children of military families and anyone with loved ones serving overseas. 
’Twas the night before Christmas, when way out to sea
Not a creature was stirring to windward or lee.
The sailors were nestled all snug in their racks
Like orders of pancakes, so tight were the stacks.
One Christmas Eve out at sea, some homesick sailors are paid a visit by Master Chief Claus, the Santa of Sailors. This lively and poignant tale was inspired by Clement C. Moore’s classic yuletide poem.
