Little Santa

Jon Agee. Dial, $17.99 (40p) ISBN 978-0-8037-3906-2
How did Santa become Santa? Agee’s inspired account of the jolly man’s boyhood offers some clues. Though Santa’s miserable parents and six older siblings want to trade their tough North Pole life for the warmth of Florida, young Santa can’t imagine leaving the place he loves. He delights in making snowmen, decorating pine trees, and, yes, sliding down the chimney. When a huge blizzard threatens the Clauses’ relocation plans, Santa, in his snappy hooded red jumpsuit, swings into action, enlisting a few new friends: a high-flying reindeer, and a houseful of hardworking elves. Agee’s lighthearted tone, sly jokes, and signature simple shapes with thick, black outlines capture a joyful kid sharing his sense of wonder. Ages 3–5. Agent: Holly McGhee, Pippin Properties. (Oct.)
