Returning from his yearly trip about the world, Santa is dismayed to find that Prancer is missing. ""Where's Prancer?"" he asks again and again. Prancer is in Philadelphia exploring the historic sites, startling the police and worrying a little dog. Santa hitches up his sled and in no time the curious reindeer is restored to the team, content now that he has seen the actual celebration of the holiday about which his life revolves. Illustrated by the author, this is an amusing variation of the Santa theme and will find many enthusiasts among discriminating beginning readers.
