Book Review: Santa’s Slip Up


It’s the night of Halloween. Spooks, spiders, and skeletons abound, the full moon glows – so who is cheering, “Ho, ho, ho!”? Apparently, Santa Claus has come to town, though it’s the wrong time of year! But what could be a bad situation, is wittingly handled with humor, and there’s a new winner at this year’s Halloween parade! For fans of Room on the Broom and The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything.

This is a fun, rhyming book for children. Santa made a boo boo this  year and arrived during Halloween, finding himself surrounded by zombies, vampires and witches! What is he to do? Luckily everyone was in their Halloween costumes and no one noticed!
