Norwich writer Rebecca Munsterer will be at the Nowich Inn with her new book when Santa comes to town on Friday, December 7th!
Mrs. Claus and The School of Christmas Spirit is a new Christmas story about a modern girl in a magical adventure.
If Kat McGee had one Christmas wish, she'd wish to be special. Instead, she's the boring middle in a family packed with sparkly siblings, including three sisters who have all starred as Mary in Totsville, Maine's annual big-deal Christmas Pageant. All Kat's done is wet her pants on a rollercoaster and earn herself the horrible nickname, "Kat McPee." When she doesn't get the part of Mary, Kat's convinced that Christmas will be just another Kat McPee failure.
But then Kat's beloved Gram lets it slip that she went to school with Mrs. Claus. The Mrs. Claus. Before Kat knows it, a magical snowglobe whisks her away to the North Pole, where she makes friends, checks naughty and nice lists, and takes classes in cookie baking, reindeer training, and toy designing. It's a Christmas miracle...
But something is wrong. The North Pole is being threatened, and only Kat can help…
