Title: When Santa Fell to Earth
Author: Cornelia Funke
Reading Age: 10 Years
This story is just like a present, enticing until you open it and not letting go till you finish the last page. I loved the language the Cornelia uses as she paints a bright picture in your mind about Santa, his elves and the evil that chases them.
My most 'Magical' phrases were - 'A thousand bolts skewered the stars, and thunder rolled across the pitch-black sky with a sound like a derailed freight train.' Another phrase that I loved was… 'Lightening licked the ramshackle caravan like a snake's tongue, but Niklas dreamed of almonds and marzipan, as Santas usually do.'
This book hooked me right in and I couldn't put it down. Beware, it will capture you too in the magical world of the True Santa.
