He knows when you're awake"
~ from "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town" written by John Frederick Coots and Haven Gillespie
Quite possibly the creepiest lyrics ever written.
An encounter with a dodgy mall Santa leaves a young boy nursing a lifelong fear of the jolly old elf.
-"His beard was so disturbing,
Gray hair up to his nose.
It was dry and shedding dandruff,
That covered all his clothes."
The boy is even more creeped out when the gross vision in red promises/threatens to visit him on Christmas eve.
The rhymes are well done and the illustrations are cute, yet appropriately unsettling. I particularly enjoyed the drawing of Santa's rank, camo-colored breath wafting into the boy's face and the picture of the youngster boarding up the windows and doors (including the doggy-door), while his pet looks sadly at the floor.
This is a fun and unusual take on the Santa experience. If you're looking for something not so sweet and sentimental, put this one on your "nice" list.
This is definitely a fun read, it's simply illustrated but those illustrations complement the story well. I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Depending on where their Christmas courier belief pattern is at of course to if you show them this yet, but kids love it too.
I liked this story about the odd aspects of the Santa Clause tradition. The story should make parents chuckle when they realize, "Oh No! I've turned into my parent!" I thought it was funny, and a totally new approach to the Santa Clause story.
P.S. Note that the story is not suitable for small children.
