Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* PreS-K. The words are minimal in this exuberant holiday title that explains the extraordinary care and effort Santa puts into his work. It's the images that will truly delight. On each spread, multiple pencil-and-gouache pictures show Santa preparing for the holidays: listening to kids rattle off present requests, taking notes and researching each child, testing and selecting toys. The disparity between the deadpan voice and the energetic, absurd pictures creates perfect comedy: "He finds the best toys in the whole world. He makes sure they are fun to play with," read the straightforward words next to a stream of small pictures showing Santa, clad in outrageously patterned britches and red high-tops, twirling hula hoops around his ample belly, performing somersaults on trampolines, tucking bottles into baby dolls' mouths, and gleefully testing out a unicycle and a pogo stick. As in Rollercoaster (2003), Frazee creates extraordinarily expressive characters and a strong sense of motion in her winsome scenes. Children eagerly anticipating Christmas will thoroughly enjoy this rowdy holiday celebration and its behind-the-scenes, personalized look at a diligent, devoted Santa, who, working alone (there are no elves or a Mrs. Claus in this telling), "gives the exact right toy to the exact right kid, 99.9% of the time . . . no one is perfect. Not even Santa Claus." Gillian Engberg
