KIRKUS REVIEW

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)
