Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"My daughter and I enjoyed reading it together, and the illustrations by David Wenzel give you a vivid glimpse of life at the North Pole. The Girl learned what Santa's favorite cookies are, and I learned that the North Pole is more technologically advanced than you might think. I highly recommend Mrs. Claus Explains It All for parents whose children ask a lot of questions that aren't easy to answer without inside information.

"This is a real cute book, and the illustrations by David T. Wenzel are lovely. Mrs. Claus Explains it All is a great book to cuddle up on the couch with some cocoa in hand and your child who still believes in the magic of Santa.

"Finally! A book that gives us the lowdown on Santa, the North Pole, his elves and reindeer. This tell-all comes directly from the big guy's number one assistant, Mrs. Claus, so you know it's the real deal! Mrs. Claus answers the most frequently asked questions received in letters from children each year. As you page through, it is immediately obvious how much thought was put into each answer. The explanations are realistic, yet still very magical. They are also quite lengthy, which means the book would be equally interesting for older children as well as younger ones. Mrs. Claus does a wonderful job of giving just the right amount of information.

The illustrations are a perfect match for the writing. Beautiful, full color drawings show what the North Pole really looks like: a peek at Elsbeth baking in her kitchen, Santa's workshops, the elves' quarters and the reindeer stables. Each question is posted on a colored scrap of paper printed in a child's handwriting, followed by a thorough response and an inside look at the area in question. This combination of clever presentation, great explanation and beautiful illustrations make for an absolutely fabulous Christmas book.
