So we all know Santa Claus as a jolly old man who lives in the North Pole and worries about the icecap melting under his house. However, what do we really know about his childhood? Well, Genevieve Godbout has put her talents to illustrating the story of St. Nick's childhood. It's a series full of whimsy and wonder as young Santa gives his first gifts and makes his first sleigh.
Genevieve comes from Quebec. She studied traditional animation at the Cégep du Vieux-Montréal as well as at Gobelins in Paris. She worked with Disney until 2013 when she moved back from London to Montreal to become a full-time illustrator. She has worked with The Walt Disney Company, Chronicle Books, Tundra Books, Random House, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, les éditions Milan, Comme des Géants and La Pastèque.
