Fairy Tale Christmas by Michael McLean and Scott McLean

Book Description:

Santa Claus has been kidnapped! Behind the plot are the fairy tale villains: an evil queen, a wicked stepmother, a beanstalk giant, and, or 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 her, and time is running out.

Fairy Tale Christmas is a little bit Into the Woods and a little bit How the Grinch Stole Christmas! and features black-and-white illustrations as well as a number of music icons that invite readers to download the free music and listen to the songs sung by the fairy tale characters.

Sure to be a Christmas classic, Fairy Tale Christmas reminds all of us that there is good in everyone and that the magic of Christmas and the spirit of giving can soften any heart.

Tarah's Review:

Are you looking for a new Christmas book to read to your kids this year? Fairy Tale Christmas is super cute and funny. While it wouldn't (probably) be a sit down and read in one sitting book, if you have older kids, but not too old, I think it portrays the magic of the season. I loved that it focused on how there is good in all of us, that it is just about the choices that we make. The humor was funny, the few pictures were fun to look at, and it just had a really good feel to it. I admit I am a sucker for fairy tales, but this book was worth the read, and I can't wait to share it with my kiddos.
