FAIRY TALE CHRISTMAS by Michael McLean and Scott McLean (Includes Giveaway!)




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.

REVIEW

What a creatively new look at the Christmas season and Santa and toy giving!  Santa has decided that all kids deserve at least one present to help inspire them to be good.  As a result the elves and reindeer have been working overtime to get ready for Christmas Eve.  Meanwhile, some well-known fairy tale villains (think Rumplestiltskin, Snow White, Jack and the Beanstalk, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty) want their own so-called happy endings.  In order to force the fairy tale heroes to give up their happy endings they decide to kidnap Santa Claus.  But like most such things, it doesn't go the way they planned.  This is a light fun read for middle grade readers who enjoy fairy tale spin-offs and Christmas stories.

The advantage of having a songwriter for an author is the addition of music to the story.  While the website where the music will be is not up yet, I look forward to checking it out.
