I knew from the title that 'The Day Santa Stopped Believing in Harold' by Maureen Fergus with illustrations by Cale Atkinson would be a fun title. I wasn't wrong.
Santa wakes up one day and has a crisis of belief. He doesn't believe in Harold anymore. He wants to, but he has doubts. He is sure that Harold's mom is writing the Santa letter and that Harold's dad is putting the snacks out. This leads Santa to believe that Harold doesn't exist, but Harold is one of the most magical parts of his Christmas. It turns out that Harold is also having his doubts. This leads to a pretty funny ending, but will Santa start believing in Harold again and vice versa?
This is a really fun Christmas picture book. The pictures are very seasonally appropriate and pretty funny. I especially liked one of dad doing a spit take with coffee. Santa seems sad and grouchy about not believing in Santa. I hope Santa never stops believing in me.
