Publisher's Summary

Who would ever guess that the beloved legend of Santa Claus involves a seldom-told tale of faith and friendship between two men -- one white and one black? Long ago, Santa Claus had an African partner named Pete and together they brought the spirit of Christmas to America's first settlers. These two forever changed the way families celebrate the holiday. But through the years, Pete's contribution was forgotten.
Now Santa & Pete restores the legacy in delightful style and delivers an inspiring message of hope and harmony among people. The story starts with a bus driver who takes his grandson along on Saturdays as he travels a historical route in New York City. What unfolds is a series of wonderful adventures that culminate on Christmas Eve, when the bus gets stuck in a snowstorm. That's when the grandfather's running genealogy lesson, based on author Christopher Moore's own family history, arrives at its final destination: the story of Santa and Pete.
A truly magical tale, Santa & Pete will take you and your family back to the heart of Christmas.

Not what I was expecting but still good

I was expecting another hilarious tale of Christmas mayhem by " The Author Guy", Christopher Moore. This is NOT that Christopher Moore! This was a great heartwarming story with beautiful narration by Delroy Lindo. I did finally get caught up in the story but I kept waiting for something funny to happen. If you are looking for a tale of Christmas terror, reread The Stupidest Angel.
