Review: A little child is apprehensive over Santa coming every year and in his mind has turned him into a menacing and evil being. A man who hurts the clouds and makes a mess in his house. Then he finds that his neighbour doesn’t get anything from this man at all.
This was very creative, it wasn’t a story I enjoyed much honestly but it was still a very unique tale of Christmas through a different perspective. It was interesting reading all the thoughts that this child had, of what Santa does and how mean those thing were and how he didn’t want to write a letter or sit on his lap and that his neighbour got nothing.
I like that it highlighted the differences between him and his neighbour and the cons to the season through a child’s eye. It was a very interest concept for a book for the season, not a style or topic you see very much.
