Summary
Santa's parents think their little one is absolutely wonderful, even though he has a booming voice instead of a baby's gurgle, loves to stand in front of the refrigerator, gives his birthday presents away, trains his hamsters to pull a matchbox sleigh . and has an unusual interest in chimneys. The adorably funny portrait of an oddball kid who fulfils his destiny - and two very proud parents.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Bailey and Godbout give Santa Claus a backstory in this sweetly funny account, warmly illustrated with soft, nostalgic pencil and pastel artwork. As a child, Santa's booming "ho, ho, ho"-as well as his predilections for the color red, giving away his birthday presents, and cool temperatures-set him apart from other kids; his certainty, as someone who knows his own mind, follows him to his calling as an adult. The result is a clever take on the Santa myth that develops him as a character with his own thoughts and motivations (and that would pair nicely with Jon Agee's similarly excellent Little Santa). Godbout's cozy artwork gives the book the feel of a classic, while also offering some cheeky moments-as when a young Santa stands naked in front of an open fridge, trying to cool down. Ages 3-7.
