  Christmas is not a holiday for those working in hospitals, and the work load is often heavy during the Yuletide.  So, to the rescue comes the North Pole Rescue Team with Santa in green scrubs and his R.N. elves.

It's a new twist to an old tale. Sure to bring smiles to children of those in the medical field.

David Davis has published pen-and-ink artwork, cartoons, poems, humorous essays, and short stories in various magazines and newspapers. He is also the author of Redneck Night Before Christmas, Trucker's Night Before Christmas, and Jazz Cats (all for Pelican).

James Rice is the illustrator and/or author of over sixty titles.  He has taught art at the grammar school, high school, and college levels.
