This is a very sweet little Christmas tale of St. Nicholas and his forgotten helper... a Moor named Pete. It's actually quite lovely... mixing fiction and non-fiction... with a bit of Christmas, African, Christian & American Indian history and lore all bundled in together... and even a theory on how it came to be that a Dutch leader bought the Island of Manhatten for $24 from the American Indians. It's a lesson of love, tolerance, acceptance, friendship and the strength of family and tradition...a quick read, and a very nice one. Know that the author is not the Christopher Moore who wrote Lamb, Bite Me, etc... Nothing bizarre or scary in this story... no zombies, aliens or mythical creatures... unless you count a little magic and St. Nick himself into that category!
