    This sounds adorable. I guess Santa would have questionable teeth after eating so many cookies and drinking all that milk left for him. I wonder, does Santa and the Easter Bunny put their fallen teeth under their pillows for the Tooth Fairy? Does the Tooth Fairy have a stocking hung up for Santa to fill? What about the Great Pumpkin? The questions this one book brings to mind are enormous. Oh, my head is going to explode!

    I am going to follow you around and maybe my questions will find answers.

      Haha thanks so much for your enthusiasm! Yes, lots of fantastical thinking went into the book, and I’m thinking there would need to be a follow-up to answer ALL of those questions!

    There could be a whole series of books based on this concept: when the characters that we think of for different seasonal events meet in strange ways. What kinds of conversations would they have, for example?
