christmas box

Enter the magical festive world of the Christmas ‘Tree-Dwellers’, as Larry, a Christmas snowman, wakes up after the long sleep in the Christmas box, to find his brother is missing.
Desperate to find him before Christmas, Larry, along with his girlfriend Debbie, a newcomer Splint, and Larry’s companion Tinsel, break the laws of the ‘Tree-Elders’ and escape down the tree and away into the house, to look for clues.
Away from the safety of the tree and in an unfamiliar world, the Dwellers stumble upon a dark and sinister secret that threatens their entire world. Can Larry and the group make it back to the tree in time to warn the others, and finally uncover the truth behind the ‘Secrets of a Christmas Box’?

My Review: This is a fun book with a different slant – Christmas ornaments that come alive.  I enjoyed reading this book and I am pretty sure that children will like it as well.  When I think that there are no more areas of Christmas to explore, a new book comes out which blows away that theory.  This is a book like that.  Christmas ornaments come alive, some ornaments are missing from last year, and new ones join the group.  Everything stems from the “Christmas Box” in which the ornaments are stored by “the family.”  The ornaments have names and are totally personified.  Some of the ornaments have a mystery to solve which easily engages the reader.  We don’t know who to trust.  I see a children’s Christmas movie based on this book in the future – a very fun new holiday read!
