Michael and Scott McLean have written my new favorite Christmas book Fairy Tale Christmas. This is a book you will want to read every single Christmas season. When I sat down to read this book I couldn't put it down. It is a funfilled adventure with a wonderful message, applicable not only at the Christmas season but all year long as well.
The Evil queen, wicked stepmother, a sorceress, a giant and Rumplestiltskin are tired of never receiving a happy ending to their stories. It is always the heroes that receive a "happily ever after" and these villains want their own happy endings. These evil villains plan to kidnap Santa Claus in order to demand a happy ending in order to release Santa and give the children of the world Christmas. The villains are sure that the heroes of their stories will do whatever it takes to give Christmas to the world. Rumplestiltskin is their inside man. Disguised as an elf, he is able to learn Santa's routine and is instrumental in getting their plan started.
However, since it takes so long to actually trap Santa and get their demands known, Santa isn't going to have enough time to deliver Christmas to the world. Santa tells the villains that they must help him deliver Christmas before they can have their demands met. It is during this time, when the villains are out giving gifts to the world, that they have a change of heart. They find another source of happinessm but you have to read the story to learn what exactly enables them to find this happiness. But I can tell you that it is something that we can all have for ourselves.
After reading this story, go and do something nice for someone else. When you return home, check out FairyTaleChristmasMusical.com to hear songs the McLean's have written that go along with this wonderful story.
