This is a wonderful and amazing book for children as well as adults!!! I have mine, which is a first print and cherish it. I ordered 3 more when I saw it. Gave my 2 kids a copy and saved one for future Grandkids.

Exceptional book, has been a part of our Christmas traditions since its first printing in 1982. Truly entertaining and original, clever answers to all the 'whys' and 'hows' you wanted to know. Kids absolutely love it.

I purchased this book years ago for my grandchildren. I just ordered 4 more copies to give to each family. Great reading for Children and Adults. This book answers a lot of the WHY's that children have. We have one granddaughter who did not believe until we read this book to her. She is now a believer again........After all Christmas is for the kid in all of us.

It provides logical and intricate explanations to all the 'Santa' mysteries. It's incredibly entertaining and the illustrations are phenomenal. One of my favorites.
