Über diesen Titel:

Inhaltsangabe:

Long, long ago Santa Claus had an African partner named Pete, who helped with the holiday rounds. Together the friends brought the spirit of Christmas to America's first settlers and shaped future celebrations of the holiday. But through the years Pete's contribution was forgotten.

Now "Santa & Pete" restores the legacy in a delightful story of hope and racial harmony as a grandfather passes the tale on to his grandson during the course of a snowy bus ride.

Rezension: This fictional story based on a young African American boy in New York City is grounded in history (co-writer Christopher Moore is the Commissioner of New York City Landmarks) and decorated with the whimsy of imagination and magic. When Terrence was seven years old, he was forced to spend Saturdays riding alongside his grandfather, a Metro bus driver, through the streets of the city. At first Terrence is resentful, but then he begins to listen to his grandfather's stories--the stories of the settling of New York, how the city belongs to all people of all races. Driving down St. Nicholas Avenue, his grandfather begins the story of "Santa & Pete." He tells how St. Nicholas was imprisoned as a spy during the Inquisition, but was eventually rescued by Pete, a former slave in Spain under the Moors. The duo found their way to New York and began the long-standing tradition of giving gifts to the needy. When Terrence eventually discovers his connection to Pete, the story suggests that all who celebrate Christmas can be the rescuers and helpers of St. Nicholas. --Gail Hudson
