This is a silly Christmas picture book depicting themes about the difference between wanting and needing, greediness, the true meaning of Christmas.

When Anton gets an orange instead of the big presents on his 16 page wishlist, he is not pleased. So displeased is he that he decides to sue Santa. What will happen? How will Santa react? Who is right?

The book is sweet and good for kids.
