9780689860515: How Santa Really Works

An ingenious look at how Christmas really works.; Beneath the Arctic Polar Ice Cap, deep underground, is a bustling community with one mission and one mission only - to make Christmas happen. Have you ever wondered how Santa can pop out of a chimney without a soot stain on his red velvet? Elves, of course - fully trained at the Elf Academy in chimney sweeping! And does Santa Really have to time to check if every single child's been naughty or nice? Of course not - that's why he created the CIA (Christmas Intelligence Agency) to train elves to spy on children. And where do all those Santas in department store grottoes come from? The Santa Academy, of course. How Santa Really Works is a true scoop on how Santa does what he does so well, brilliantly conceived by Alan Snow.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3 Up–Snow's clever and ever-so-slightly subversive exposé will answer all the FAQs, and some new ones. Intricately detailed pen-and-ink, computer-colorized illustrations will keep viewers endlessly amused. The text is aimed toward sophisticated readers, and actually offers a nice overview of the steps that companies take to produce a product–brainstorming, research and development of prototypes, etc. There's a subtle British feel to the language and illustrations. Large quantities of homely little elves swarm over the last two-thirds of the book; they are young and old, with diverse skin tones; some use wheelchairs, and a few seem to be aliens from another galaxy. They talk to one another via speech bubbles, which, along with the crowded (sometimes chaotic) layouts, make this a book much more suited to personal perusal than sharing with a group. Even youngsters who don't believe in Santa or Father Christmas will find much to admire in Snow's creative take on a beloved holiday icon.–M. A.
