A group of misfit holiday decorations come vividly to life as they try to make their way home for the holidays in this enchanting and heartwarming picture book from Scott Santoro.

The houses on Candy Cane Lane have some of the most spectacular holiday decorations around, so when a winter storm hits and damages some of the festive lawn ornaments, the residents simply can't allow the broken figures to ruin their prized displays. Many end up in the trash, including a scuffed choirboy who is sure he'll never have a chance to bring holiday cheer to the lane again. That is, until a little girl in the only undecorated house on the block saves him and gives him a special spot on her lawn.

But when a misunderstanding the next morning sends the choirboy off to the dump, he'll have to team up with a plucky group of other discarded lawn ornaments to find his way back to the little girl and the one place everyone wants to be during the holiday season--home.

With classic holiday spirit and illustrations as merry and bright as any holiday display, Scott Santoro brings Candy Cane Lane to life for readers of all ages.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Inspired by the plastic choirboy that decorated Santoro's childhood lawn at Christmas, this offbeat story opens on Candy Cane Lane, where dazzling Christmas displays adorn all the houses, except for one. In that small house, a girl whose father can't afford decorations is thrilled to discover a discarded choirboy after a storm, but her father accidentally returns it to the trash. In a wild chain of events, the choirboy befriends a plastic reindeer and Halloween ghost, arrives at a factory filled with rejected lawn ornaments ("There was a Santa with a green coat, a camel with three humps, wise men without gifts, and a snowman who looked melted"), and leads them back to Candy Cane Lane to brighten the girl's yard and spirits. Santoro's (Which Way to Witch School?) brassy digital cartoons have an appealing 1960s vibe, and his cast of playful misfits cements the idea that the holidays are for everyone. Ages 4-8.
