While we may have all tried to catch Santa, this story takes it to the next level! Santa and his elf have to avoid quite the array of traps to accomplish their Christmas tasks in this book, though some seem a little far-fetched.

4.5 / 7.0

This book has a fun rhythm and beat and the illustrations are fun and add a love of movement and excitement to the story. I don’t love the premise of mischevious kids trying to trip up Santa and catch elves, but it’s silly and fun.
