Matt Tavares Book Signing: Dasher Can't Wait For Christmas!

“If you ever get lost, just look
for the North Star.”

With only one sleep left before Christmas Eve, Dasher can’t
contain her excitement for her favorite holiday. With the
sound of Christmas carols on the breeze and twinkling
lights radiating from a nearby city, she sneaks off to visit
the festivities. But as night deepens and snow starts to fall,
Dasher realizes she can no longer spot the North Star in
the sky to lead her home. Will the kindness of a child, an
unexpected gift, and a dose of Christmas spirit get her back
in time to help guide Santa’s sleigh? The New York Times
best-selling creator of Dasher has crafted another delightful
journey, full of giving, joy, and holiday magic.


Matt Tavares is the author-illustrator of the
New York Times best-selling picture book
Dasher, as well as Red and Lulu, the graphic
