Grade 2-5–I'm being stalked by Santa–/it's a feeling I can't shake./He sees me when I'm sleeping./He knows when I'm awake, reports a young boy to an unseen psychiatrist. Throughout the book, the wide-eyed child sees Santa disguised as a fast-food server, a biker, Elvis, and a host of other apparitions, making this a page-turner to see where he'll turn up next. While the ending is predictable, it does not detract from this amusing parody of the song Santa Claus Is Coming to Town. McCoy's wacky cartoons are sprinkled with visual jokes that only adults or older kids will understand, including the front cover resembling Edvard Munch's famous painting The Scream and a bust of Dr. Phil next to a bust of Freud. This fun read-aloud offers a humorous take on the holidays to be shared one-on-one or in storytimes.–Maureen Wade, Los Angeles Public Library
