In The Great Santa Stakeout by Betsy Bird and illustrated by Dan Santat, Freddy Melcher can’t wait for Christmas so he can finally get a coveted selfie with Santa Claus himself. Just like Freddy, Santat is also counting down the days until Christmas by wearing an Ugly Christmas sweater he received from his editor* Kait Feldmann EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Don’t believe us? We’ve got the pics to prove it!
*Note: Cheryl Klein originally acquired The Great Santa Stakeout; Kait Feldmann is the current editor.

@scholasticinc sent this ugly women’s Christmas sweater to help promote #TheGreatSantaStakeout by @fusenumber8 with art by me. For the next 25 days I will attempt to be like Freddie Melcher and dress festively in this UGLY WOMEN’S SWEATER to promote our book. (Proof it’s a women’s sweater. First of all, it’s tapered in at the sides. Secondly, THERE ARE SHOULDER PADS STITCHED IN) PLEASE BUY THE BOOK
