Santa Claus: All About Me

Juliette Atkinson, illus. by John Atkinson. Minedition (IPG, dist.), $34.95 (96p) ISBN 978-988-15126-5-9
Originally published in 2010, this coffee table–ready guide to all things Santa Claus and Christmas unfolds as a wide-ranging collection of private diaries, written by the man himself. Numerous flaps and mini-booklets combine with a few pop-up elements, reproductions of vintage holiday illustrations, photos, and John Atkinson’s painterly illustrations as Santa expounds on favorite stories he’s heard from children over the years, his many names and costumes around the globe, and even slightly tangential subjects like the history of flight and the spice trade (“Just think, if we didn’t have spices and sweeteners, we wouldn’t have mince pies!”). While adults are perhaps most likely to appreciate this Santa’s discursiveness as he jumps from topic to topic, the eye-catching artwork, interactive embellishments, and snippets of Christmas lore present quite a bit for readers to sink their teeth into. All ages. (Oct.)
