PreS-Gr 2—From the team behind How to Babysit a Grandpa (2012) comes this similar guide with a glitterized cover. It's packed with tongue-in-cheek advice on how to catch Santa and then what to do with him. You can't keep him long—he's busy! Questions to ask and things to tell him must be thought of in advance. Techniques for his capture will require some effort, as illustrated by several humorous scenarios. Don't be too disappointed if you don't catch him—there's always next year!
VERDICT Clever, chuckle-worthy fare in a nonreligious context.—Linda Israelson, Los Angeles Public Library
