Did you know that Santa Claus returns to the North Pole 1,756 times during Christmas Eve? Or that he averages about 75 million miles over the course of 31 hours? Back in 1000 AD his sleigh was originally made of bone and ivory, but now it's entirely constructed of graphite and stainless steel, even providing a durable swivel seat!

Indeed, there has never been anything quite like Flight of the Reindeer. Most, if not all writers, have approached the adored Santa Claus tale in a variety of ways, but none have tried to explore the reasons behind it. Robert Sullivan provides documentation from Santalogists, historians, zoologists, and Arctic explorers to confirm that flying reindeer are anything but a myth, and that Santa Claus does, in fact, make his trek around the globe each Christmas Eve. Glenn Wolff's insightful and profoundly detailed illustrations impeccably coincide with Sullivan's comprehensive research to provide a classic for children and their parents. A must-have for the holiday season!

From the Author:

Herein is told the tale of the greatest of elves...
Herein is told the tale of the greatest of elves, his flight from Iceland to Greenland, Canada and, finally, to the North Pole --from which outpost he carries on the most extraordinary acts of benevolence and kindness. There is history, wonder and good, hard science in FLIGHT OF THE REINDEER; 50 full-color paintings by Glenn Wolff and 50 exceedingly rare photographs --including the only extant photos of Santa flying on the big night-- help to forward this special story. Experts who know of, or even work with, Santa Claus come forward to bear witness: Sir Edmund Hillary says he saw strange behavior on the summit of Everest in 1953, the adventurer Will Steger says he visited the elusive village at the Pole in 1986, former President George Bush says he signed the international accord to curb circumpolar air routes on December in 1989. For all the truth about The Christmas Mission that is presented, there is, it is hoped, just as much magic.

From the Back Cover:

In Search of Santa Claus Those who know him best tell their remarkable tales. George Bush President Was a Helper Helping that fellow clear his airspace by signing the Santa Claus Clause was a great privilege of my office. A great privilege." Sir Edmund Hillary New Information on Everest The local people insisted there was something happening up there on the summit every December. Tenzing must have believed that. At the top, I saw him place some cookies in the snow." Al Roker Forecaster to the Elves In one hour in New York you can have snow, ice, rain—then it changes back to snow! Santa has to know what's going on. I tell him." Will Steger Only Man to Visit the Village It was big, but it was small. It was calm, but it was bustling. It was happy—yes, I would even say it was jolly. The village was precisely like Santa Claus himself!"
