Santa's (Zany, Wacky, Just Not Right!) Night Before Christmas (book review)

Santa's Zany, Wacky, Just Not Right, Night Before Christmas was written by DK Simoneau and David Radman, and illustrated by Brad Cornelius.  I was provided with a copy in exchange for my honest book review.  All opinions are my own.

About the book:

"One Christmas Eve it was a cold stormy night; and nothing at the north pole was going quite right..." Santa's (Zany, Wacky, Just Not Right!)Night Before Christmas is a whimsical tale of Santa's journey through a Christmas Eve that doesn't go as he expects. One small event leads to a series of surprises that change Santa and Christmas as we know it. It's a story to spark the imagination, make kids giggle, and bring a smile even to a grownup's face.



The book is available for order now in both Kindle and hardback version at Amazon.

It is also available at and limited gift and book stores.




My review:

Oh  my gosh... what a nightmare!  Poor Santa... everything about Christmas is going wrong.  From Mrs. Clause being sick... to his famous suit turning purple... to his reindeer turning blue... to Christmas shoes instead of stockings.  It's all just wrong.  Christmas is ruined!

And all because Mrs. Claus is feeling under the weather.  I love that even Santa can't do everything by himself.  Without Mrs. Claus to take care of him, things just all fall about.

Such a silly story... one that loads of kids are going to love giggling at in the weeks before Christmas!
