Our customer reviews

"The Christmas Chronicles" is the story of Santa Claus... and how he came to actually be Santa Claus. It's told in the most magical of ways, which really draws the reader in. I have to say, I did quite enjoy the first part of the book. It flew by! But, I think, when it got closer to the end, there were a couple things that left me unsettled. One was the untimely death of a dear character! Alas, I won't mourn over that. The thing that really had me scratching my head was that Klaus's enemy "Rolf Eckhof" later becomes a "demon", and is referred to as such many times. I didn't quite understand why such an ugly word had to be used in such a whimsical book. This is what degraded the entire story, in my opinion. On the whole, however, I did rather enjoy this imaginary read. Fun prevailed as I read chapter after chapter. If you enjoy a good Santa book, you'd probably like this more
