Santabulous Reader Reviews
"My eleven year old niece and I enjoyed this book so much! We loved the writing style, and it kept our attention from start to finish. This book definitely put us in the mood for Christmas! Edward's teddy bear is absolutely precious - the characters were relatable and my niece related to Jill. The pictures were an awesome addition. They were beautiful and sprinkled throughout."
"I have to admit I enjoyed this story. It's fun to read a book with so many twists and turns. I believe parents and children will thoroughly enjoy reading this book this holiday season. I recommend this book for the entire family. "
"I'm reading this with my little ones and they LOVE it so far. The illustrations help them feel more a part of the book as they graduate from board books. I also love the free online Advent calendar - what a fun perk that we are definitely using this year. What an awesome book."
"We purchased this from the author at a Christmas fayre. For everyday in Advent you get to read a chapter. The tears that came when my daughter knew we had read the last page because we enjoyed this book so much. 1000% can't recommend it enough. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Thank you for a wonder book."
"Great story line suitable for all ages. Thoroughly enjoyed reading this also as an adult. Highly recommend."
