Book Review: “The Day Santa Stopped Believing in Harold”

Like many boys and girls of a certain age, Harold has a problem: he’s not sure if he believes in Santa Claus anymore.  Little does he know that Santa has a similar problem.  His friends have convinced him that Harold isn’t real.

Mrs. Claus tries to convince Santa to keep believing in Harold, but Santa’s got evidence.  Harold’s handwriting looks too neat, like something his mother wrote.  He couldn’t put out milk and cookies because he’s not strong enough to lift a heavy milk carton.  Santa worries that Harold’s parents are tricking him.

So, while Harold decides to hide in his living room to see if he can spot Santa, Santa decides to hide in Harold’s living room to see if he can spot Harold.

As you can imagine, The Day Santa Stopped Believing in Harold, by Maureen Fergus, is hilarious.  Cale Atkinson’s adorable illustrations make it even funnier, particularly Santa’s grumpy, pouting expressions as he insists that there is no such thing as Harold.  Although some kids might feel bothered by the idea of Santa not believing in them, others will get a kick out of the sight of Santa hiding behind Harold’s couch and the silly reasons he gives for not believing.  I certainly did!
