Honestly, one of my favorite books. I bought this book initially to give as a gift to a co-worker who was operating under a cloud this Christmas, having to explain to his kids that he had been fibbing all these years about the jolly Fat Man in Red. He dreaded the devastation the news might bring and the damper on their holiday. Yet they are at the age that they would likely hear it from one of their peers, and that would be even worse. The book reveals the truth about Santa -- that he's an inside-job -- in such a fun and loving way, kids are certain to embrace this totally ALIVE, new and very real Santa.
