This book is quite short and makes for a quick read (which is a good thing when you've got squirmy kindergartners). The children quite enjoyed this one.

Duck is in a panic. He's worried about how Santa will view him this year: naughty or nice? he lays out cookies for Santa (so he can get good presents) but then gobbles them all up himself. How can he make amends? (to get good presents). His "apology" note to Santa is a lift-the-flap which keeps the interactive feel of this going strong.

Long's book reads like a Mo Willems Pigeon book or New Socks by Bob Shea. It is a novelty book that has a cloth Santa cap on the cover and a little fold out letter to Santa in the back.

Duck has been nice all year long. What will Santa think of one last minute indiscretion?? Will Duck awake to presents or coal??
