Bradley Bartleby is bad. Very bad. To avoid Bradley's wrath, his wealthy parents buy him whatever he wants. All the adults in Bradley's life are running scared--except for Santa Claus, who refuses to give him anything but socks. But Bradley vows to get what he deserves. If Santa won't give him the gifts he wants, Bradley will just have to steal them. In the end, he transforms his house into a trap so fearsome even his parents refuse to enter it. With dynamite, trapdoors, guillotines, and tigers in his path, Santa doesn't stand a chance. Or does he? Jonathan Emmet gives readers a Christmas tale from a new and devious perspective. Poly Bernatene's illustrations perfectly complement the story of the spoiled Bradley, making this a hilarious and exciting story that will keep readers laughing from beginning to end.
