Popular mashup comes to classic kid icons as Bigfoot, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy and the Jolly Old Elf himself are all entwined in a tale that could well serve as the new Christmas Story Staple. The writing is crisp and clever, the characters are varied and interesting, and the plot steams along seamlessly. Most importantly, this enjoyable little treasure is chocked full of heart, with no hint of snappiness, older readers will smile, younger ones will laugh out loud and maybe even cheer a time or two. Saint Nicked is that rarest of literary animals, the Holiday Book that can be cherished 365 days a year.
This book is wonderful! Mr. Courtney read this to my class and we had to stop and finish it the next day. My whole class wanted to read more! It was a great book.
