Review for Kid Christmas

Review for Kid Christmas

Kid Christmas: Of The Claus Brothers Toy Shop David Litchfield, Christmas, Magic, Fantasy, Picture Book, Toystore, Santa ClausI received this book from Netgalley/the publisher in exchange of an honest review.

OMG, FINALLY! I have had my eyes set on this book for a while, but I guess after a while I just removed it from my Goodreads list because it kept being unfindable. I am so happy that I can read this one now, thanks publisher/Netgalley! OK, it felt a bit odd to read this during a summer month (August), but I will take it!

In this wonderful book we meet a boy named Nicky Claus (yes!) who works at the toystore of his uncles making sure that every kid has a toy. And the fun things about it? Every toy is magical and so it will find the right owner to be with. Which just had me squee, plus wonder what kind of toy I would have gotten if I had such a magical store near me! Oh the possibilities! But back to the story, the store is one full of magic, and not just real magic, but also with how it looks. It is a warm inviting, glittery and sparkly place. You just are attracted to it. Like a moth to the flame, but without any of the burning, haha. I just loved how David Litchfield captured the store and the magic.

But what happens when Nicky finds out that there are kids who don’t get presents? Who don’t have the money? Who don’t have the means? Well, kids, that is how the Claus legacy begins! Because Nicky isn’t going to let his new friends and other kids be without toys! I loved that he immediately made a big plan and convinced his uncles to help out! I had a laugh at the reindeer and how much they relied on carrots. And I was cheering for Nicky, because that first night wasn’t always the easiest. How to bring the presents? How to do it without anyone knowing? I loved that he found a way and I love that it involved friendship!

The ending was just a big warm fuzzy bath of feelings and happiness. I just loved it! So so much!

And of course the art by David Litchfield is just the most amazing. I have been a fan of his for a while and this one is no exception. It was stunning. You could just feel the warmth and the magic radiate from the pages.

I would highly recommend this book to all! A Christmas book not to be missed! Read it!

Star rating, 4.5 stars
