Comments: A family out driving stumbles across Xmasville where they make Pola Cola. The place is not on the map but it certainly is like Christmas there but with a creepy touch. Everyone in town is dressed as Santa.
A woman Kate calls on Klaus through magical means and mysteriously he does appear. He is in the future now but he and Kate seem not to notice. It works though as the story is told so smoothly.
Klaus and his wolf Lilli explore this town where it is Christmas all year round. Klaus encounters an evil looking version of himself. This guy or thing is truly evil and what he does is just sick.
Klaus gets some help from Snowmaiden and her staff made of Dream Silver. The evil twisted version of Klaus transforms as they battle into a big powerful werewolf. He is illustrated so fiercely.
The story flows along as if like a Christmas story told around a roaming fireplace. its magical properties reach out to you. The miracle of Christmas is a live and well here. The Christmas spirit and Santa Klaus live on.
