Mischievous elf, Elvy, couldn’t wait for Christmas Eve. So he took Santa’s sleigh and tried to deliver the presents early. But he’s lost, and now Santa – who went looking for Elvy – is lost too. Readers are asked to help Detective Inspector Scrooge to find Santa.
Where’s Santa? is a look and find book, in the tradition made popular by the ‘Where’s Wally’ series, is lots of Christmas fun. Readers are asked to find not just Santa, but also Elvy, Mrs Claus, Detective Inspector Scrooge and even Fluffy, Santa’s pet yeti, in settings including the beach, a shopping centre, a holiday parade and a school ground. There are lots of Santa look-alikes to make the job more challenging and, at the back of the book, a list of extra things to find on each spread.
Suitable for preschool and primary aged readers, this would make a great stocking stuffer.
