santas - from the Animals' Merry Christmas book
'Santa Claus said he simply could NOT be everywhere at once. He said it was no use trying.
Mrs Santa Claus thought very hard.
"Your helpers will be glad to go to the stores and ring the bells for you," she said. "I'll fit them all out in your old Santa Claus suits!"
I was fascinated by this particular illustration when little and would stare at it for ages counting the Santas.
