Santa Claus
Author Rod Green
Illustrator Carol Wright
Publisher Atheneum Books for Young Readers

Rod Green must have gone undercover at the North Pole. He's written an expose that reveals all Santa’s most deeply held secrets. How does Santa deliver toys to all the good little children all over the world in a single night? What about the chimney and Santa’s size? What about houses with no chimneys? How can we know whether that Santa we spotted sitting enthroned at the mall is really Santa? All these questions are answered and more. Green covers every aspect of Santa’s life at the North Pole from Mrs. Claus’s Christmas cookie recipe, a sample letter to Santa, a fact sheet on one John Timmins, age 8, as Santa decides whether to put him on his naughty or nice list, and a double fold out of Santa’s workshop complete with a booklet on the wisdom of the elves. We get the full scoop on Santa’s reindeer, how his sleigh operates, and how Santa spends Christmas Day. The beautiful illustrations include many lifelike elements that add touches of reality. The foldouts, pullouts, and extra treats in the book make each page a treasure chest of Santa memorabilia. Green cleverly includes information about other aspects of the North Pole such as igloos, arctic animals, snow, and the aurora borealis. Children will find this a fun read even past the age of true belief.
