It is Emmy the dragon's first Christmas, and she is determined to meet Santa Claus even if she must travel all the way to the North Pole to do it. Ten-year-old cousins Jesse and Daisy have been Emmy's Keepers ever since she was an egg small enough to fit in a dresser drawer. But by 7 months, she is as big as two elephants and has a sassy attitude to match. On Christmas morning, the two cousins find an empty barn and a note from Emmy explaining that she is helping Santa. With the assistance of some magical snowshoes, Jesse and Daisy are able to follow their charge to the frozen north, where they meet up with St. Nick. After a ghastly meal full of endangered animals and several threatening remarks from Santa, the cousins realize that the man in the red suit is not Santa at all, but Beowulf, an infamous dragon slayer. Filled with magic, mythology and mystery, this creative story will enchant longtime fans of the series as well as newcomers. Emmy's combination of sass and childlike behavior will resonate with young readers heading toward their preteen years. Corny humor and a cheesy ending feel just right. Fizzy and light series fare. (Fantasy. 8-12)

Children's Literature - Denise Daley
Jesse and Daisy are children who have been entrusted as the Keepers of Emmy, a magical dragon. It is Christmastime and although Jesse and Daisy no longer believe in Santa, Emmy is convinced that he is real. Emmy runs off to find Santa and Jesse and Daisy chase after her. The children are astonished when they find Emmy at the North Pole, visiting with Santa and his elves. Jesse is amazed even more when he notices that Santa is dirty and greedy and that all of the elves stink. Even worse, Santa offers Jesse and Daisy toys in exchange for becoming the new Keeper of Emmy. Is this strange and unsavory man really Santa? If he is not Santa then who is he and why does he want a magical dragon? The mystery deepens as the children learn more about a legendary dragon slayer named Beowulf. Could Beowulf still be alive and masquerading as Santa? This interesting and suspenseful fantasy will keep readers on the edge of their seat as Jesse and Daisy uncover clues to find the truth. There is a single black-and-white illustration at the beginning of each chapter. This is book six in the "Dragon Keepers" series. Reviewer: Denise Daley

    No Christmas Magic Here... Childhood Magic Destruction for Belie

    No Christmas Magic Here... Childhood Magic Destruction for Believers
    Alarmed at reading this as a bedtime story and seeing the get main characters Jesse & Daisy saying that there's no Santa or Tooth Fairy, I came to find some more descriptive reviews of this book. It gets worse from the two chapters we've read! This is NOT a sweet Christmasy tale for kids. They travel to the North Pole and do then meet "Santa & elves" -- who are dirty, greedy and enjoy eating endangered animals for dinner! Turns out Santa is really a bad guy in disguise. A major disappointment for the kids who have enjoyed reading this series. Poorly done, Kate Klimo, so I send a "bah, humbug" to you... you should be ashamed of putting yourself in the category of authors who try to destroy magic... stick to creating it!
