Fairy Tale Christmas

About the book: Santa Claus has been kidnapped!

Behind the plot are an evil queen, a wicked stepmother, a sorceress, a beanstalk giant, and, of course, the mischievous Rumpelstiltskin. They have a plan that will erase the term "Happily Ever After" from our storybooks forever.

But it's nearly Christmas Eve, and time is running out. Can Santa and the fairy-tale heroes save the day and bring Christmas to all the children of the world? Will anyone have a "Happily Ever After" again?

Fairy Tale Christmas reminds us all that there is good in everyone and that the magic of Christmas can soften any heart.

My review: This book is really a fun one! I loved the whole premise. A bunch of the bad guys from fairy tales, the giant from Jack and the Beanstalk, the evil step-mother from Cinderella, Rumplestiltskin, and Snow White's mom have gotten together with the perfect plan to fix the endings of their fairy tales. You see, every time a child reads the fairy tales these villains get a bad ending, not the happy ending that the heroes from these fairy tales get. They are sick and tired of getting the shaft and they know just what to do about it. They'll kidnap Santa, on Christmas Eve, those bratty heroes will gladly trade endings with the villains to fix Christmas for the kids around the world, won't they? 

I loved that this book is written for kids 8-12, I was able to read it quickly. The story line is fun and moves fairly quickly. I loved the characters in this book, they are quirky and fun, perfect for kids in this age group. The plot isn't overly involved, it's just right for elementary kids reading. And I thought that the ending was perfection. I also really like that there is a website that goes with the book so that you can actually hear all the fun songs from the book how they are meant to be heard. I can't wait to see what our 8 year-old thinks of this fun book! 

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
