Santa Claus is going to town Marrying the magic of Scanimation with the universally beloved figure of Santa Claus, Santa is a holiday book unlike any other.
It presents a Santa that readers have never seen before acrobatic, playful, a little mischievous, filled with joyful energy. Here s Santa hula-hooping. Santa juggling. Santa doing cartwheels and Santa on a unicycle. Children, as they did with Gallop , will want to imitate Santa s irresistibly happy motions. The grown-ups will be unable to stop smiling it s hard to imagine a cooler character than this jolly St. Nick as he runs, spins, gyrates, backflips, and blows big bubbles.
Scanimation is the technology behind the instant New York Times best-selling series that started with Gallop , to most recently The Wizard of Oz. Author and inventor Rufus Butler Seder continues to refine the Scanimations, with ever more smooth-flowing and detailed moving images perfectly applied, in this case, to the irresistible figure of Santa Claus.
