The Naughty List – Ad sent for review and giveaway

disclosure:  we were sent the item mentioned in exchange for a review and giveaway post

I have a festive treat to share with you today on the first day of December.  The Naughty List (Amazon Affiliate link) by Thomas Conway is published through Skylands Publishing House and has claimed the 2020 Indie Book Award in the E-Book Fiction category.

The Naughty List

The Naughty List is aimed at children aged 8-12 years of age and is a perfect read in the run-up to Christmas. Can you imagine a world without Father Christmas, where he didn’t show up for Christmas?

The book has an underlying message throughout the story of good conquering evil and love over fear and starts with the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade in New York.  Hardly anyone seems to have noticed that Father Christmas didn’t attend the parade.  The magic of Christmas seems to have disappeared and people are too busy with technology to think about the true meaning of the season. Hermey knows instantly that something must be wrong, he’d worked for Santa many years ago and knew that he’d never miss entertaining the children in the run-up to the festive season. He sets off to the North Pole with his grandson Tiberius to find out what’s going on.

Father Christmas has disappeared.  He’d left from the North Pole to attend the parade and never arrived. Hermey and Tiberius are introduced to Scout, head of EIN – Elf Information Network, she informs them that it would appear that Hermey’s son, Rudi and his employers, Eastern Industries, have kidnapped Santa and that they want the world to believe that no one needed him any more.  She also informs a non-believing Tiberius that he has been number one on The Naughty List for the past three years. The elves know everything, and far more about his misbehaviour, than his grandfather is aware of.

The elves decide that only the children on The Naughty List can rescue Santa and save Christmas, and so the adventure begins. Can the children show the world that they aren’t as naughty as they seem?  Can the spirit of Christmas be reignited and can the truth of the aims of Eastern Industries be uncovered?

The Naughty List is a lovely read and one we’ve enjoyed.
