Book Review - Top Elf

Top Elf

About the Book
These elves are off the shelves.

Ollie and Celia think they know what the life of an elf is supposed to be like: Make toys. Help Santa. Make more toys. Help Santa. Try out a new ice-cream flavor. Help Santa.

But then Santa rocks the North Pole with a surprise announcement! He's decided this is going to be his last year in the Big Red Suit--and instead of letting his oldest son, the unfortunately named Klaus Claus, take over, he's opening up the job to any kid who wants to apply--Claus or elf.

The Santa Trials have begun!

Ollie and Celia enter the contest, having no idea whatsoever that they'll soon have to squeeze through impossible chimneys, race runaway sleighs, sweet-talk a squad of rowdy reindeer, and consume cruel amounts of cookies and milk. It's both an adventure and a survival test, far beyond what any elf or Claus has been asked to do before. But whoever rises to the top will get a reward even bigger than Christmas . . .

My Take on the Book
This is a crazy book with an almost amazing race feel to see who will be the next Santa Claus. My daughter and I loved reading this together. It not only had fun characters, but it also had adventure, intrigue, humor and more. The author keeps you wrapped page-by-page and does not give anything away, making you want to read more to see what will happen int he end. This was such a fun book that you will love to read with your kids too!
