    Michael Sheahan is a retired NYPD detective, who is also an accomplished singer, songwriter, and musician. His love of celebrating all the holidays with his wife and three boys inspired him to create Mr. Holidays, and an entire series of characters, songs, books, and dances that cherish the values, warmth and traditions of each holiday. "The Roof Top Hop" is the result of the collaboration of Finest Music, Finest Media, and Fine St. Records.
    The Roof Top Hop is a fun and innovative way to not only tell a unique and entertaining story about Santa Claus, but to get children moving and hopping around. The illustrations are amazingly detailed and life like, and will catch the eye of every child. The character, Mr. Holiday's, will remind many of the charismatic and talented, Fred Astaire, who was the narrator in Santa Claus is Coming Town. The dance DVD that came along with the book is professionally done and teaches children the steps of the dance, the words to the story and the song. Coloring pages and many extras are included on the disc. And for the car, as well as to play in the home, is included a 4 song CD that will become every households new favorites. With the collaboration of many talented people, Mr. Sheahan has created a wintertime masterpiece that will entertain children of all ages for years to come, helping them create a new and memorable family tradition.
