How Does Santa Go Down the Chimney?

author: Mac Barnett
illustrator: Jon Klassen

When Santa arrives at a childís house on Christmas Eve, does he go down the chimney feetfirst or headfirst? What if he gets stuck? What if thereís no chimney? Maybe he slides under the door, as thin as a piece of paper? Or is it possible he pours himself through the faucet? What happens once heís inside? Whether itís shape-shifting or impromptu laundry use, Mac Barnettís iconic talent for earnest deadpan humor and Jon Klassenís irresistibly funny art honor the timeless question with answers both ridiculous and plausible, mounting in hilarity as the night continues. Channeling a childís fanciful explanations (and begging for further speculation), this latest collaboration by a New York Times best-selling team will find a secure spot among family holiday traditions.

The beloved, multi-award-winning duo of Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen tackle a perennial question.
