HERE COMES SANTA CLAUS

Gene Autry, Author, Bruce Whatley, Illustrator, Oakley Haldeman, Joint Author , illus. by Bruce Whatley. HarperCollins $16.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-06-028268-4

Whatley (Elvis Presley's The First Noel) gussies up the singing cowboy's bouncy classic. Complementing the familiar lyrics, the visual story tells of a boy whose note to Santa explains that he "already asked for a genuine cowboy hat" for Christmas but really wants a puppy. Fortunately, as jolly old Saint Nick heads "right down Santa Claus lane," it appears he has a stowaway who fits the bill. Interesting perspectives include an aerial view looking down on the reindeer-borne sleigh. Music and lyrics are included on the endpapers. Ages 3-up. (Oct.)
