    Christmas done Koontz's way...

    This is a very cute Christmas poem along the lines of Twas the Night Before Christmas. The story is about Santa's evil twin stealing Christmas and trying to ruin it. Can two little girls rescue Santa before Christmas is lost? Is Santa's twin really evil or can he be cured of his nastiness?<BR/>The illustrations in Santa's Twin are fantastic! There is even a little game of finding the hidden snowman on every page. Dean Koontz does a very nice job straying from his usual genre, horror, and writing a truly charming Christmas tale for the whole family

    Has replaced 'twas the night before Christmas

    I was so excited when I found out that Dean Knootz released this book from Mr. Murder. Little did I know, my children would want me to read it to them every Christmas. It has become a tradition that I really love! If you have not read this book. Then you must buy it! Trust me, you will not regret it!

    Soon to be a Christmas Classic!

    I read this book in the bookstore and couldn't stop laughing. Dean Koontz spins a wonderfully funny tale about Santa's evil twin brother named Bob. Two little sisters are the only ones who can stop him from ruining Christmas. The book describes the horrible presants the mean Mr Claus gives out (including toad snot and snail slime) and the mean things he does (like loading 10 pounds of popcorn in a microwave). Highly reccommended!

    Santa's evil twin has kidnapped Santa and taken over. He's bringing horrible things to put under the tree and doing terrible things to sully Santa's name and reputation. Emmy and Lottie are the only ones who can save Santa and Christmas.

    Written in poem form, this is one of the funniest reads for Christmas. I laughed so hard. I loved it. This is modern Christmas classic! Boys will enjoy it as well as girls and adults. I never expected something like this from Dean Koontz but it is worth picking up and re-reading each Christmas. It's fun!

    Good For Young and Old

    I loved this book! Not only did it leave my children in fits of giggles, it even got a few good laughs from my husband and I. I had always thought of Dean Koontz as a strictly adult writer, but he has definately proved himself to be multi-talented. The story had some cartoonishly scary moments. Younger children might squirm a bit during these "scary" scenes, but if they are anything like my daughter, they will beg you not to stop.
    The illustrations are beautiful. Phil Parks is a very talented artist. The little surprise in every picture will keep the children busy long after the story has been read.
    If you have children I would say you need this book. Even if you don't have children, I would recommend this book.

    hmm?

    I havent read this poem yet, but it just caught my eye on the Dean Koontz list. I just wanted to let people know that this story actually comes out of one of his other books Mr.Murder.<BR/>Marty Stillwater writes that poem for his 2 girls in Mr.Murder. Its kinda cool now that I know he published it... I want to read it lol.
