'Twas the Night Before Christmas: A First for Gus

Sherry Roberts

2022 FAPA President's Book Award: Gold: Children's Picture Book Dreams do come true... even for a little shelter dog named Gus. It's the night before Christmas and Gus just can't sleep. He lives in a shelter and longs for a home of his very own. Suddenly, he hears a loud noise and looks outside to find Santa Claus. As they ride off into the night sky together Gus has no idea what surprises their trip will bring.
