Santa Claus has been kidnapped! Behind the plot are the mischievous and evil characters of fairy tale stories--an evil queen, a wicked stepmother, a sorceress, the beanstalk giant, and Rumpelstiltskin. They have a plan that will erase the term "Happily Ever After" from storybooks forever. 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.
This cover is so much fun! Isn't it awesome, I love it. This book is tons of fun. It combines some favorite fairy tale villains and Christmas. What a clever idea and great combination. The story is sweet, entertaining and reads fast. The scheme that the "Clandestines" come up with to stop Christmas and redeem their stories is creative and down right evil (in a cute way). I loved the ending and the message of even the nastiest characters can change given the chance and Christmas magic. I think the epilogue is my favorite, it adds just the perfect final touch to this great story. This is a great book that you and your kids can read every year to start a new Christmas tradition. There is also music with this book too, of course, it's Michael McLean! Find out more at Fairy Tale Christmas Musical.
