Format: Hardcover
I am VERY pleased with this book. It is a beautiful hardcover book with bright, crisp color printing and a simple story. There is about one sentence per page, so it's a good choice for toddlers on up. My 6-year old sat and read it cover to cover immediately. Jerry Pallotta is a terrific writer and makes the most of this short tale.

The story line is about Santa looking for helpers. He tries dragons (the toys get cooked), fairies (they leave glitter everywhere), Bigfoot (only one toe fits through the door), mummies (only good at wrapping), leprechauns (too busy chasing rainbows), gnomes (too fond of vegetables), mermaids (toys got soaked), aliens (only made spaceships and never heard of Christmas), unicorns (with hooves they couldn't hold the tools), wizards (they turn Santa into a frog), and finally elves.

David Biedrzycki's illustrations are positively luminous and bright, and there are many humorous touches. All in all this is a terrific book, especially for the money.

A Kid's Review on March 2, 2012
Format: Hardcover
Santa got a big load of letters so he needs some extra help making all of the toys. He tries dragons but they burn everything up. Then he tries fairies but they make a mess. He tries mommies, mermaids, and aliens, but none of them work out. Finally, the elves came. Will the elves be the perfect helpers? Read to find out. I learned if need help don't find things that will burn up stuff, make a mess or not work out....Riley L.

This was a gift given to my 5 year old son, it is one of his favorite Christmas books. There is a little surprise on every page if you pay attention, a hidden tiny image. We still have one more to find. Happy hunting!
