A picture book by Ryan Wetter


If you weren’t aware, there’s a man at the mall pretending to be Santa Claus. He’s certainly not Santa, and Squid knows this. Seven-year-old Squid is a self-proclaimed detective who acts upon a suspicion and follows his neighbor Fred James to work. Fred James, a shopping mall Santa, is a bit too thin and lives in an apartment on 14th and Flinn… and why two first names? Fred James is an imposter, and the Squid is going to prove it. But before Squid gets the chance to solve his case, Fred shares an unexpected secret. Click here to read the illustrated story.
