Where’s Santa? Around the World

Where’s Santa? Around the World by Louis Shea (Scholastic Australia)
HB RRP $15.99
ISBN 978-1-74283-685-0
Reviewed by Jenny Heslop

Santa and Mrs Claus are going on holiday. As they travel they are shadowed by Naughty Nat and Mr Paws who want to swipe Santa’s list to add their names to the Nice list. As well as these four characters, there are plenty of other delights to find on each page in this entertaining look-and-find book. From the Great Wall of China, to the tombs in Egypt and the historic site of Stonehenge, the reader must search through humorously detailed illustrations to spot up to 600 different things.

This is a great book for school aged children and will even keep adults busy as well. Although not as hard as the Where’s Wally books, the pictures are teeming with interesting mini-scenes, interactions and some truly hilarious moments. I’ve always enjoyed Louis Shea’s sense of humour and this book is no exception. It would make a great addition to the Christmas books on the shelf and with the long days of summer holidays approaching, this book could come in handy.
