Publisher Summary

Pink suit. Moustache. Helicopter. This may not be your ordinary Santa, but it's still a daunting Christmas Eve challenge! There are so many presents to deliver, and so little time. It's a good thing Santa has a plan. He'll just peek into every window and toss in a gift. Done! The trouble is, Santa is moving much too quickly to see who really lives in each house. With interactive cut-outs throughout, readers will delight in following Santa's lightning-speed Christmas antics as they discover the true (and hilarious) identities of the gifts' recipients! From the beloved and bestselling Taro Gomi, here is Christmas cheer for all!

The Book Snob Mom's Rating

This book was hilarious and a little bit ridiculous, filled with incorrect determinations of who lives in each house based on what Santa can see peeking through the window, but in the end, everything works out, so no harm done.

This colorfully illustrated story has a fun aspect of a window cut out in the pages that makes reading this story more fun! The story was cute of Santa bringing presents to all of the different animals.
