Sabuda remains a master in the medium, constructing a series of varied and well-engineered scenes: Santa pops in and out making use of the chimney, beds fold out, a window shade rises and falls, and, inside a clever nod to Moore's not-a-creature-was-stirring text, it's a loved ones of mice who are receiving Santa's nighttime visit. A pull-out tab even lets readers interact, when Santa's sleigh glides out on the clouds and over an intricately realized village. It's hard to pick a favorite scene here, but you can bet that kids will love the book's pop de ré sistance, in which Santa's lead reindeer nearly fly proper up your nose (if they don't knock you out of your chair very first ).
The book's first-rate production and lively pop-ups are adequate to recommend it, but Sabuda goes one better by showing the thoughtful restraint to generate most with all the pop-ups virtually completely white. (All ages) --Paul Hughes A couple of accents of color catch your eye (Santa's red suit and silver pipe) , but--as befits such a dynamic book--the visual concentrate stays on the action.
