Editorial Reviews

Horn Book Magazine
“The pictures pop with color; the animated scenes are detailed but not too busy for the intended audience, who will delight in the visual jokes. This stocking stuffer will get a lot of mileage.”

PreS—This sturdy addition to Biggs's series finds Santa Claus delivering presents by land, sea, and air. Accompanied by a single reindeer, he hauls around a huge round bag of presents in vehicles that are common and those that are a bit unconventional. Each one is identified in a single word on the page, such as "snowmobile," "canoe," "bus," "bicycle," "helicopter," "sailboat," "truck," "motorcycle," "airplane," and "speedboat." Little ones will enjoy the bright, humorous cartoons that highlight Santa's offbeat attire (helmet, goggles, life jacket) as he uses the different modes of transportation. Christmas fun for youngsters who never tire of books about machines.—Teri Markson, Los Angeles Public Library

Santa, his signature sack and a reindeer companion travel by a variety of means of transport to make some special deliveries. Subsequent double-page spreads show Santa riding on a snowmobile, a canoe and a bus; at one point, he even water-skis behind a speedboat. The last two pages show Santa, sack now empty, flying on his reindeer and wishing the reader a "Merry Christmas!" Aside from this holiday greeting, the only text is a simple one-word caption naming Santa's vehicle of the moment, so it is not entirely clear why Santa has ditched his iconic reindeer-drawn sleigh. Like others in the Everything Goes series, Biggs' cartoons, all drawn with a chunky line, are bold and inviting. With a good variety of vehicles on display and plenty of quirky humor, particularly the scene of Santa riding a bicycle with a pooped reindeer holding the oversized sack balanced on the handlebars, there is enough here to hold the interests of toddlers and their parents alike. A fine yuletide choice for the vehicle-obsessed. (Board book. 18 mos.-3)
