As Christmas Eve settles on the quiet trailer park, everything is as still as a rabbit caught in headlights. That is, until the Christmas Redneck appears on the scene.
Dressed in camouflage, missing a few teeth, and chewing some tobacco, the Christmas Redneck comes bearing gifts for good little boy and girl Rednecks everywhere. His sack full of toys is hauled by his flying pickup truck and his eight hound dogs. The only question is: "Have you been a good Redneck this year?" If so, you, too, might see the Christmas Redneck.
This delightful story is the newest in Pelican's Night Before Christmas series. Told in the tongue-in-cheek style familiar to fans of the series, this tale will entertain children and parents alike. The descriptive text and vivid illustrations make this book the perfect gift.
