A Christmassy welcome to the Blog Tour for Siggy Saves Christmas by Brian Frederick! I am so excited and hyped that I can be part of this tour + review the newest book! Eep!
For today I am reviewing the book (4.5 stars) and then I also got some book/author information!
Ready? Let’s get started~

But then something goes wrong.
Siggy is tasked with saving Christmas. But can he do it?

About the author:
I was born in County Down, Northern Ireland, in December, 1969.
I was a “60s child” for 26.5 hours. I think that’s important!
I grew up during “the Troubles” and went to a school where CS Lewis was once a pupil and Samuel Beckett briefly taught. (Beckett once replied that students there were indeed the “cream of Ulster” being “rich and thick”… I’m not the former, sadly, but you can be judge about the latter.)
HOW DID I GET HERE?
Anyway, I left that place and went to university and got LLB and LLM degrees and a bit of a career as a lawyer which didn’t agree me with me. I didn’t agree with it, either!
I’ve never been terribly good at respecting authority, and I suppose it showed. Some ups, some downs, and…
Eventually I pitched up here, where you see me now. I much prefer writing stories than writing writs, it turns out.
WHAT DO I CARE ABOUT?
I don’t know if stories for children can change the world, but I hope they can make it a little better – certainly for my readers.
I hope I can bring a little more joy into the world, and a little more truth and kindness.
I do care that these and other important things are often in short supply when they needn’t be. Maybe we can change that together…
WHAT DO YOU DO USUALLY?
I work as a Mediator – so as a kind of anti-lawyer bringing peace to litigation instead of more fighting, usually in commercial disputes, when I’m not dreaming and writing children’s stories!
