Just as Little Joe became a hero for saving Christmas in the first book, Little Joe’s Christmas, he becomes a hero for the second time in this feel-good sequel, Little Joe Meets Santa Claus. Witnessing a bully teasing and harassing a smaller boy, Little Joe approaches to intervene, when his friend Coleen gets knocked down. While coming to the rescue, Little Joe stops the bullying, but accidentally steps on and breaks Coleen’s charm locket. Upon being informed of this by Elf 719, and watching the scene unfold in his special globe, Santa, who wants to stop bullying from happening in every school, instructs his elf to bring Little Joe to the North Pole for a meeting and a special award. Little Joe’s visit to the North Pole and his meeting with Santa will be everlasting memories for the boy, and readers of all ages will delight in this heartwarming story.
