Where's the biggest think-tank for market research on kids and toys? Look no further than the North Pole. After all, Santa's made a whole career out of matching just the right child with just the right plaything "99.9% of the time./ That's almost always!" Frazee (Roller Coaster ) takes a peek into all of St. Nick's thorough—but oh, so fun—work, filling her pages to the brim with kinetic images of Santa hula-hooping, checking his massive stockroom or surrounded by his elegantly wrapped gifts. Spot illustrations of kids sitting on Santa's lap or gleefully opening their presents are also a delight. Ages 3-7. (Oct.)
