I love reading holiday books with my children as the holidays draw nearer. As a multi-faith household, we read books on Christmas and Hanukkah and I’m always looking for new ones.
Kirby Puckernut and the Christmas Surprise is about an elf who is part of a trial run to bring elves into homes with children to spread Christmas spirit and act as a liaison between children and Santa Claus.
The book is long with many words per page but it’s a sweet story, a children’s drama of sorts because it has the part where you think, “Oh no, what’s going to happen now?.”
It’s different which is what’s best about it. It’s not just ANOTHER Santa visits the children book or the family decorates for Christmas book. It’s different. It sucked me in, like a good adult fiction book usually does but this is a picture book. I was hooked and waited on baited breath to read the next page.

The illustrations are beautiful, absolutely exquisite. Such detail! Did you view the trailer above? If so you must have seen what I mean. If not, please do watch it, so you can see the beautiful detail.
Check out the Kirby Puckernet Facebook Page, especially in December for some fun colouring contests.
