In the week before Christmas, Santa has so much to do!
Watch Santa and his elves as they make all the presents, groom the reindeer, and prepare for their most important night of the year -- Christmas Eve. With tabs to pull to change the pictures, readers can watch them get everything ready day-by-day, until finally Santa's sleigh takes off into the sky on Christmas Eve.
Ruth Martin has been an editor and author of children's books for many years. She lives in South London with her husband and daughter.
Sophy Williams lives in Wiltshire, England, with her husband, Mark Robertson (also an illustrator), her two lively sons, Oscar and Leo, and a scraggy black cat. Some of Sophy's childhood was spent living in Singapore, Hong Kong, and the Middle East, and her illustrations are often influenced by these far-flung locations.
The artwork is soft, homey, and fun to look at even without any special effects. The sturdy format ensures this will stand up to many readings.
