I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!

And what better gift on Christmas than a book, and I have just the story for you. I posted about it a while ago when it was released but here is the review.

Santa’s Little Helper by HD Gordon

5 stars

(Excerpt from Goodreads) He shows up in a white box, with a bright red book under his arm… He wears a jolly grin and hat, a suit with gold bells and green yarn… He watches you for Santa, or so his red book claims… But though his grin is jolly, he’s not here for fun and games…

The children have been chosen, such precious little souls they are… And may the Gods be with them, if they wish to make it very far… For Santa’s Little Helper does not say, but knows important things… He knows when you’ve been bad or good, and what monsters stalk your dreams… He knows when you are sleeping, he knows when you’re awake…He’s picking out his presents…He’s got some souls to take.

Four children, ages 5, have received a little box with a book and an elf in it. The book explains that the elf is Santa’s Helper. That he watches the children and reports back to Santa if they are good or bad. But this is not what you are thinking. This elf has nasty little teeth and eats those that are bad. All the children come from different backgrounds and home lives. But this story is also told from the parents and how the elf gets them too.

First off, every time I see and Elf on the Shelf I get creeped out. Think creepy elf with more bite. Ugh!! I love how you get to see everything from the different perspectives of the children and the parents and how the families are all diverse. All of the children think the elf is bad and don’t want to have anything to do with it but they are all stuck.

If you like the creepy, Stephen King, like stories you will love this. Because it has those creepy elves from shelves in it just makes it better. This is a great story that would be a great addition to every Christmas season.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
