“A new hit this year is How to Catch Santa. . . . The picture book offers lighthearted tips on how kids can steal a glimpse of Mr. Elusive, aka Santa. . . .” —USA Today
In this continuation of Reagan and Wildish's tongue-in-cheek series of "how to" books, an unseen narrator presents an array of ideas for catching Santa, detaining him long enough to answer questions about how the reindeer fly or how he fits down chimneys. "Be crafty! Be clever! Be gentle," writes Reagan, dismissing ideas like lassoing Santa like a steer for ones like leaving him a note filled with glitter, so that he'll leave a trail. Wildish's illustrations embrace the comedy of the narrator's suggestions; in a departure from the brightly colored palette of most of the scenes, he offers a quiet view of snowy suburban rooftops by night, as the narrator instructs readers to listen for "Santa sounds" like "Santa doing stretches on your neighbor's roof."
