Holiday Review Thursday: Santa's (Zany, Wacky, Just Not Right!) Night Before Christmas

With Mrs Claus not feeling well, Santa has a hard time getting ready for his big trip this year. He even washes his suit in purple paint. This accident has a rippling effect on Christmas - and not in a good way. How ever will he fix it?

My Thoughts: It's an entertaining story and I think kids will really enjoy it - especially all the changes to Christmas. As an adult reader, I wasn't crazy about the message of whose job is should be to do the laundry. I wish that the changes to Christmas happened for a different reason, not a sexist one. The illustrations are great, showcasing all the differences - much to Santa's horror.

Cover Thoughts: Cute
