Is Santa tired of hopping down chimneys every Christmas Eve?

It is this question that Leann Smith answers in a sweet holiday book for kids that could also be the start of a great tradition for you and your family.

In "The Magic Christmas Key," Andy's grandfather gives him Santa's special key for safekeeping. When the key accidentally winds up in the wrong hands, Andy must go on a Christmas adventure that leads him to Santa himself.

The book, sold by Wendell August, also comes with its own magic key. Instructions tell tots to hang the key on their front door each Christmas Eve -- that way Santa can get inside even if there is no fireplace (or if he is just a little too full of Christmas cookies to fit down the chimney).

“Santa’s Magic Key is a special gift that can be passed down from generation to generation,” said Will Knecht, president of Wendell August, in a press release. “It’s a heartwarming family tradition that reminds us that 'All things are possible when you believe.' ”
