The beloved, multi-award-winning duo of Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen tackle a perennial question.

When Santa arrives at a child’s house on Christmas Eve, does he go down the chimney feetfirst or headfirst? What if he gets stuck? What if there’s no chimney? Maybe he slides under the door, as thin as a piece of paper? Or is it possible he pours himself through the faucet? What happens once he’s inside? Whether it’s shape-shifting or impromptu laundry use, Mac Barnett’s iconic talent for earnest deadpan humor and Jon Klassen’s irresistibly funny art honor the timeless question with answers both ridiculous and plausible, mounting in hilarity as the night continues. Channeling a child’s fanciful explanations (and begging for further speculation), this latest collaboration by a New York Times best-selling team will find a secure spot among family holiday traditions.

How Does Santa Go Down the Chimney was a delightfully humorous read. Children often wonder just how does Santa makes it inside? Through the silly illustrations, every possible way of infiltration is explored. I found the story highly entertaining and laughed throughout making it a great book for Christmas even if we may never know the real answer.

How does Santa go down the chimney and what happens if you don’t have a chimney? These are common questions children ask every year around Christmas time and this author has many theories on how Santa really delivers his presents. Does he get really small or turn into fire? Probably not. He also has to get back up the chimney some kind of way but how?

HOW DOES SANTA GO DOWN THE CHIMNEY is a thought-provoking children’s Christmas story that is full of humor. Sometimes it reads a bit like babbling but the out of the box questions and theories will have children thinking in the same manner. It’s fun trying to come up with other alternatives too. The illustrations are hilarious with simple details and the facial expressions had my daughter laughing.


Final Verdict: Overall this is an entertaining Christmas story that I would recommend to children looking for a laugh and for parents who want to get their kids thinking out of the box.
