#78: Fairy Tale Christmas - Michael McLean & Scott McLean (With #Giveaway)

Santa Claus has been kidnapped! Behind the plot are the fairy tale villains: an evil queen, a wicked stepmother, a beanstalk giant, and, or course, the mischievous Rumplestiltskin. They have a plan that will erase the term Happily Ever After from our storybooks forever.
To save the day, the fairy tale heroes must decide if they will sacrifice their happiness so that Santa can bring Christmas to all the children of the world. Christmas is almost her, and time is running out.
Fairy Tale Christmas is a little bitInto the Woods and a little bit How the Grinch Stole Christmas! and features black-and-white illustrations as well as a number of music icons that invite readers to download the free music and listen to the songs sung by the fairy tale characters.
Sure to be a Christmas classic, Fairy Tale Christmas reminds all of us that there is good in everyone and that the magic of Christmas and the spirit of giving can soften any heart.

REVIEW:
Coolest book ever!
All of your favorite, and maybe not so favorite, characters are in this book. I bet there is even characters you would have never thought of in this book. You know what is really cool though? The author used these familiar characters in a modern story, all with a wholesome value system at play.
Seriously, Santa was Skyping in the story! Still, in good fashion, he cleverly saved the day!
I absolutely loved the pencil illustrations throughout the book. Very talented drawings helped bring those adventurous moments in the story to life.
Although you may think the kids would be scared, judging by the cover, that is really not the case. There is no fearful moments of terror, despite Santa being in a globe. You really have to move past what you see on the front cover. You will love it and so will your kids!
