Overview

We all know Santa Claus: fat, jolly, omniscient, swift. Lives in a nice home in the Arctic, with the missus and a pack of elves.
Well, forget what you know. Santa Claus is from Greenpoint, Brooklyn, as it turns out, and hes not as fat as he used to be. Heres something else you didnt know: hes been dabbling in some futuristic technology, and has found myriad ways to make his job possible. How can Santa know whos been naughty and nice? Simple: implant listening devices into your ornaments. How can he make it to every house Christmas Eve? Thats nothing a little cloning and some wormholes cant solve. And he has plenty of other tactics: quantum entanglement, organ replacement, drug-induced hibernation, and unmanned aerial vehicles, to name just a few.
In this fantastically illustrated, affectionate, and hilarious book, Gregory Mone uses science and technology to overturn the assumption that Santa cant be real. Drawing on the work of accomplished scientists and researchers, Mone gives us a whole new portrait of this remarkable man and the miracles he makes happen every year. With imaginative artwork and an eye-catching package, this book makes an outstanding Christmas gift for just about anyone.
