Santa Claus - the very name conjures up images of a kindly round-bellied, merry man in a coat with fur trim, presents, reindeer, a sleigh, elves, toy-making, Christmas Eve, the North Pole, snow, Christmas trees and Mrs Claus. With over 15 themed spreads, "Santa Claus" beautifully captures the enchanting world of Santa. Take a close look at Santa's house; the Elf Village; Santa's workshop; and the mailroom. Discover how the reindeer are selected and trained, where they live and what they eat. Learn how Santa's suit keeps him warm in cold climates and cool in hot ones; how Santa's sleigh works; how he travels around the world in time to deliver all of the presents; and how he stores all the presents in a magic cargo hold, which will never be full. Finally, take a look at how Santa, Mrs Claus, the elves and the reindeer celebrate on Christmas Day.
