You’ve been waiting all year long, and now it’s finally Christmas Eve! Is this the year you’ll finally catch an elf? Start a new Christmas tradition with this hilarious children’s book from the creators of the New York Timesbest-seller How to Catch a Leprechaun! “It’s Christmas Eve! Hip hip, hooray! Yes, Santa’s coming ‘round. He’s bringing toysto girls and boys in every house in town.” “Some kids have tried to catch him, but Santa’s fast, you see! So they’ve set their eyes on a smaller prize, and now they’re after me!”
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.
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.
