Fairy Tale Christmas by Michael and Scott McLean + Enter to Win a Copy of this book!

Santa Claus has been kidnapped! Behind the plot are the mischievous and evil characters of fairy tale stories--an evil queen, a wicked stepmother, a sorceress, the beanstalk giant, and Rumpelstiltskin. They have a plan that will erase the term "Happily Ever After" from storybooks forever. It's nearly Christmas Eve and time is running out. Can Santa and the fairy-tale heroes save the day and bring Christmas to all the children of the world? Will anyone have a "Happily Ever After" again?

Fairy Tale Christmas reminds us all that there is good in everyone and that the magic of Christmas can soften any heart.

Isn't this a fun cover?  It made me want to open the book to find out what was inside.  

In this book we find fairy tale characters (good and bad) mixed up with Santa Claus and his elves.  The evil characters are plotting a way to change the endings of the fairy tales they come from because they are sick and tired of the good guys always winning.

They devise a plan that includes kidnapping Santa to force the fairy tale heroes and heroines to give up their happily ever after endings to save him.

This is a short book which I easily read through in a day.  There is even a few pictures sprinkled throughout the book.  It was fun and had a great message.  I love Santa's positive attitude and his belief that every person has good in them.  There is something magical about Christmas if we allow it in.  Kindness and love will always win.

I really enjoyed this sweet little book.  If my kids were younger this would be the perfect book to read aloud to them before bed during the month of December.  The Christmas spirit is just flowing through this book.

This book is obviously a prelude to a Michael McLean production, which he is famous for.  There is a link in the back of the book to download the Copper Mine Club and Dinner Theater's original cast recording.  Part of the proceeds from this book, soundtrack and musical go toward the cost of getting toys into the hands of kids.

My thanks to the publisher, Shadow Mountain for allowing me to read and review this title for them.
