Santa and His Super Hero is a book born from late night stories and a respect for our local heroes.
Before going to sleep at night, a young Nathan would sit on his bed with his father, Keven McTaggart and come up with stories of Santa and Christmas. Being an inquisitive young man, Nathan began to wonder what would happen if Santa got stuck in a chimney. Together, father and son came up with different scenarios to add to their short stories. Firefighters played a major role as they would rescue Santa in the stories.
Creation of the book
Nathan and Keven eventually decided to put their stories together in the form of a book. They were finally contacted by a self-publishing organization that helped them get closer to their goal. Nathan was so excited to share his book with his friends that he brought it to his 2015/2016 class at Harbour View Elementary School. There, his teacher, Mrs. Shinkewski thought that it would be a neat idea to let her students draw the illustrations.

When Santa and His Super Hero was published, Keven thought that it provided a good opportunity to share this lesson with Nathan. To them, it only seemed right that since the book was about firefighters, they would support a cause in relation to them. The net proceeds from the sales of Santa and His Super Hero are given in support of the BC Professional Firefighters' Burn Fund. The Burn Fund has partnered with the Vancouver Park Board for the past 20 years to present the magic and illumination of Bright Nights in Stanley Park. On November 29th, Keven and Nathan will be giving this year's donation to the BC Burn Fund at their VIP event of Bright Nights in Stanley Park. Buy a copy of their book in support of this great cause and to pick up some great reading material. The book is an entertaining read that you will definitely enjoy.
