I received a copy of Fairy Tale Christmas by Michael McLean and Scott McLean to read with my girls. I was really intrigued by the storyline and the idea of the story and wanted to have a good book to read for them in the upcoming Holiday months. Fairy Tale Christmas was released on September 30, 2014 and is 176 pages long.
SYNOPSIS: Santa Claus has been kidnapped! Behind the plot are the fairy tale villains: an evil queen, a wicked stepmother, a beanstalk giant, and, of course, the mischievous Rumplestiltskin. They have a plan
that will erase the term “Happily Ever After” from our storybooks forever. To save the day, the fairy tale heroes must decide if they will sacrifice their happiness so that Santa can bring Christmas to all the children of the world. Christmas is almost here, and time is running out.
Overall really liked the book. I felt like some of the words and language used may be a little over my girls’ heads, but we got to talk about the words and they learned something new. I loved the descriptions and how the story was written – it made you feel like you were right there for every part of the story.
Since our family loves Fairy Tales this was another great twist on the favorites we always love to hear about – and who doesn’t love a story about Santa?
This is a fun quick read for you and your family. They will enjoy the story.
