The picture book dream team behind The Wolf, the Duck and the Mouse return with a delightfully deadpan festive inquiry into how Santa is able to enter a wide variety of residences.
The multi-award-winning duo of Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen tackle a perennial question: how does Santa go down the chimney?
When Santa arrives at a child's house on Christmas Eve, does he go down the chimney feetfirst or headfirst? What if he gets stuck? What if there's no chimney? Maybe he slides under the door, as thin as a piece of paper? Or is it possible he pours himself through the tap? What happens once he's inside?
Mac Barnett's iconic talent for earnest deadpan humour and Jon Klassen's irresistibly funny art honour this timeless question with answers both ridiculous and plausible, mounting in hilarity as the night continues. Channeling a child's fanciful explanations, this latest collaboration by a bestselling team will find a secure spot among family Christmas traditions.

'Klassen’s illustrations are both literal and playful (his animals so often stealing the limelight) and Barnett’s narrative poses the perfect balance of question and suggestion. Together, they’ve created a story bound to spark imaginative discussion and shout-out-loud engagement through the festive season. More picture book magic from the award-winning duo.' - Children's Books Ireland, Reading Matters Guide 2023
