Santa stepped away from the sleigh and went right to the chimney. With a kind of giant leap Santa was on the top edge of the chimney. He closed his eyes and jumped down. Only he didn’t go down the chimney all the way. He was stuck not quite half in. His eyes popped open with surprise and he began to try to get out. But try as hard as he could he could not budge.The whole time he was muttering, “Oh dear, oh dear. How could this happen? What could have gone wrong? I know I was in a hurry when I left the North Pole but I’m sure I did all I had to do. Let’s see. I’ve got my hat and mittens so I don’t catch cold. The reindeer are here, the toys, the belt. The belt! Oh, no, I forgot my belt.” He tried even harder to get out of the chimney. He was stuck

This is an absolutely delightful Christmas story with a new twist on it!! It held my interest and that of my grandchildren from start to finish. The illustrations are some of the finest I've ever seen...consistent from page to page with excellent facial portraits. It will be read each year from now on.

Once upon a time, not so long ago, Santa had worked very hard all year long making presents for boys and girls. He had so many gifts to make that on Christmas Eve he was still finishing one last sled.

Most of the elves were busy wrapping toys, loading the sleigh and getting reindeer ready. But one little elf stood at Santa’s side. He was the youngest elf and this was his first year helping Santa.

Juster was trying to get Santa’s attention. Santa turned to him. “Yes, what is it?” he said.

“Please, Santa, can I come with you tonight?” Juster asked.
