Book Overview

Santa: An Interview covers the tales of questions asked to and answered by Santa Claus one winter evening. In a remote northern village close to the North Pole, in a rare occasion during the holiday season Santa decided to take a break from Operation Christmas! He invited local kids and adults from all ages and backgrounds to the Fairbanks Public Library.

Santa had lovingly provided hot cocoa, snacks, blankets, pillows and a warm magical glowing fire for all in attendance. Tonight was for Santa and the families that came to share stories and ask him their questions. We’re lucky that one of the parents was a journalist for the local Fairbanks Gazette Newspaper, and by trade, always had a notebook in his back pocket. Thanks to this writer, Raymond “Ray” James, we can relive the stories and tales told that rare winter night for countless families to enjoy this holiday season.

You’ll read along as the pages of Ray’s notebook recount the stories and answers witnessed that one magical evening!

” A refreshing change in the family books genre…”

“This story is so cute. This will definitely become a tradition in our house to read the week of Christmas. It keeps the magic and wonder alive and is fun for the whole family to read.”

“Santa: An Interview is the best thing to come out of 2020!

I know it’s written for children/families but seriously, my 30 year old self read the whole thing in one sitting and sat there with a huge grin on my face. I enjoyed every tiny detail the author had added, from having representation of kids in wheel chairs visiting Santa, to all the cool doodles that ‘Raymond’ had scribbled in his notebook.

I honestly think this is one of those holiday books that will be around for years to come.

Hey Hallmark, do I hear a Christmas Movie Deal?!
I would 100% watch this if Hallmark made it into a movie!”

“Wow this was such a beautiful book with great character’s and colourful artwork and it was a really fun read and I enjoyed reading it. This is a great children book and I look forward to reading it to my grandchildren at christmas and I know that they will enjoy it so much and I loved the quote “Hero of the people” it is so magical and it says such a lot about the book and how people care and look after other’s and the children’s questions were such a special part of the book. This is a brilliant book to read to children of all ages and they will love and be able to interact with the story…”

I received a copy of this book to review, and I was absolutely enchanted! Santa meets with a group of families at a library, tells them about how he came to be Santa Claus, and lets everyone ask him a question. You learn a lot about the North Pole and the elves (did you know that there are air traffic control elves?) in a delightfully fun book. I may even have cried a little. I think this will be the next Christmas classic.”
