A Christmas Tale


What does Santa do when it’s not Christmas?” is an enchanting tale written by Volkswagen Ireland comms. guru and children’s author Paddy Comyn and charmingly illustrated by Barry Sheehan.

The little book tells the story of Santa and how the rest of the year is just sooo boring when he’s not feverishly making toys, checking lists twice, and hurtling helter-skelter across the midnight sky delivering thrills and spills! Funds raised from this seasonal softback in aid of the Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation will support home nursing care for children with highly complex medical and life-limiting conditions around Ireland. It means that 377 Jack & Jill families will have a Christmas gift of time, helping them to care for their children at home this Christmas, where they belong. “What does Santa do when it’s not Christmas?” is printed on snow-friendly, as well as environmentally-friendly paper, and costs just €8, plus postage and packaging, from www.jackandjillstore.ie
