Silver Spurs answers the question many kids have asked: Just how does Santa get into your house if you have NO chimney! I've had this book for twenty years - and have given two as gifts (not recently!). It's such a shame the book never received widespread publicity - because it's an engaging story with beautiful illustrations (very detailed, I might add). My children (now 24 & 18) have tender memories of Silver Spurs - and one of these days I hope to read it to grandchildren.

One of my favorite Christmas memories when I was a kid was when, at Christmastime, my mom would pull out our copy of Silver Spurs and read to us. The story is perfect for inquisitive little ones who just don't understand how Santa can get into the house without a chimney. Spending most of my childhood in the Southwest, chimneys can be hard to come by. I can't wait until I am able to share this classic with my little ones, and am sad to read that it is now out of print. Thankfully my mom knows how special it is, so she had kept it all these years.

I agree with other reviews... this is one of the most special books ever.... this story hit the AP wire in 1974 and was published a year later. Knigge had a float in the Gimbels Thankgiving parade celebrating the character. He donated thousands of copies to libraries. The illustrations are remarkable... the pages are wax coated and crayon proof.... the cover is fire retardant and tear resistant... These books look as good today as they did out of print. No yellowing or fading. My father, the author, would be so proud to know that 20 years after his passing, people would still be writing reviews, exchanging copies, and including it in their Christmas tradition. He most of all wanted this story to endure and indeed it has as long as even one of us continues to read it. Thanks - Paul Knigge.

My Grandpa wrote this book, and on a whim I thought I'd look it up and see if people were interested in it. I was suprised to see it was even listed on Amazon.com .

I used to sell these books door to door in the neighborhood for $5.00 a piece. They came with an iron-on Sivler Spurs and a 45 record.

My Grandpa died when I was about eight or nine, and I never realized that people loved this book. I hardly have any memories of my Grandpa because he lived out-of-state, but I'm glad to see that people enjoyed his story.

I remember as a child President Ronald Reagan mailed my Grandpa an autographed picture and a letter thanking him for writing the book. I was too young to remember but I assume he read it to his children.

Anyway, it's nice to see that people appreciate the book. I was happy to find it on Amazon.com.

This is one of the coolest Christmas stories ever. We bought the book in the 90's but someone stole it while my wife was at work. We searched high and low and finally found an excellent copy. I wish they would reprint it! I'd buy one for each of our Grandkids.

Unforgettable illustrations, super simple, an early childhood book recommended for any child who has some anxiety about how Santa gets into those places that have too small chimneys, or none at all. This is especially important for addressing the question of what did Santa do before he had the technology to teleport or transmat himself into people's homes? He had help from a gifted elf who just happened to be two sizes too small, or smaller...

I had a copy of this book, that I read to my Kindergarten classes to explain how Santa gets into homes without a chimney. It was always a hit and children begged for me to read it again. I purchased this copy for a friend, who often borrowed my copy. She wanted a copy to read to grandkids.
