Ages 6^-9. Although the title page lists Santa Claus as author, the authorship belongs to Sheila Black, who has selected 11 of Santa's favorite stories about elves on long winter nights. "Christmas Tree Soup" will remind children of "Stone Soup" ; other stories deal with finding perfect presents or conquering disbelief about jolly St. Nick. The roundup isn't likely to displace any holiday classics, but the stories, which feature numerous colorful illustrations by a variety of illustrators, are perfect for reading aloud and will appeal to adults in search of new tales that provide comforting characters, such as talking bears and winsome kittens.
