This was a very funny and hip redition of the classic. The illustrations were warm and colorful that gave the characters a realistic look. The text were similiar to the language used by African-Americans. I would use this book in diversity during Christmas. ( )

I loved this book. the language was different because the author used a lot of apostrophes in the words. The story was a little different but it was amusing. It is good to see a black version of Santa because a lot of black kids don't have the opportunity to see a black Santa. The pictures filled the page but didn't take from the story. ( )
