Let me start by saying this is not your typical Christmas story. The tale was a little outside of my comfort zone in terms of tone and character, but something tells me readers of Emily Martha Sorensen would not only expect this, but that they would love it. While this is listed as a children's story, it was definitely too dark for my two (ages 2 and 4), and it is not a picture book. All of that aside, it's a very strange twist on the tale of Santa losing his reindeer (because our main character tries to eat them!) and needing a little help to make sure Christmas isn't ruined. Our Santa, far from the jolly and friendly elf we've come to expect is an aged god performing whatever role a meager belief in magic allows him these days. While I've not read her other works, I had the feeling that Ms. Sorensen was expounding on a world she has created in some of her other works. If you like a little darkness with your holiday light and cheer, The Dragon and the Santa may be for you.
