K-Gr 2-This decidedly New York-centric offering imagines that Santa has only one destination as many small elves load up his sleigh with a huge sack of presents for the children of the Big Apple. Tapping the coordinates into his "Santa-nav," the big man leads the reindeer south across the North Sea, "flying above Buffalo and on over Albany," until a sudden blizzard causes the sleigh to crash into the Empire State Building. All ends well as Santa maneuvers his sleigh through the five boroughs, delivering presents and taking note of numerous famous landmarks on his way. In spite of the inclusion of navigational technology, this book has an appealing old-fashioned feel both in text and illustration. However, it is hard to imagine that children outside New York City will appreciate a story that has Santa returning to the North Pole after his deliveries while bypassing the rest of the world.-Teri Markson, Los Angeles Public Library α(c) Copyright 2011.
