Customer Reviews

The story reads fine but it sure seems like something is missing.
Mike
The message is still there and I think that by using a made up holiday that only exists in their world it might reach a wider audience with kids.

My granddaughter loves Sophia and this book was a real hit at Christmas.

It truly pains me to write this because my daughter is ONE HUGE Sofia the First fan and I just so happened to fall in love with the first book just to be horribly disappointed by the second book and now this book.

Sofia celebrates Wassailia which is reminiscent of a Scandinavian Christmas. The story line was quite choppy and the story was too "quick" meaning that there was really no "story" between the first page and the last.

They are to celebrate Wassailia and King Roland is missing. So they decided to look for him and take the flying carriage and get stuck in a blizzard. Aurora comes along and basically tells her to use her animal friends to find him. So, they find him in a cottage with another family and celebrate Wassailia. That's the story. Literally. Save your money.

NOW, the ONLY reason that we gave the book THREE stars is because 1. We love Sofia and are collecting the books. 2. The artwork was FANTASTIC and 3. The font was easy to read and cute like always.

We did pre-order this. Had I of read this BEFORE I agreed to make a purchase, I would not have bought it. So so sad for these Sofia books. :( The FIRST one is the ONLY book worth paying for.

**We read this book once and my daughter wants nothing to do with it anymore :(

This book is the third one we have about Sofia and her adventures as a princess. Celebrating Wassailia (Enchancia's version of Christmas) takes an unexpected turn when King Roland goes missing. The royal family heads out to find him, and of course, they do. It's not the plot that prevents me from giving it 5 stars...it's the strangely underdeveloped subplots. Minimus is the only flying horse without a cold, and none of the other horses have anything to say about it to Sofia (despite her having the amulet that lets her understand animals....that must've been SOME cold if they can't talk....), and Aurora (aka "Sleeping Beauty") appears when Sofia doesn't know how to find King Roland, but the best advice she can do is hint to Sofia that the animals could help her? Really? Really?! Sofia, you couldn't problem solve that yourself?? It was foreshadowed when Clover and company hitched a ride on the back of the coach...and yet, Clover, Mia, and Robin are strangely comment-less in this adventure, until the birds let Sofia know that they found King Roland. Hmmm. I don't have a problem with the holiday they're celebrating ("Wassailia" must just be another word for "Christmas"...it is, after all, another country), but Amber's comment about it not being a great holiday until she gets the unicorn she's been asking for, and then NO follow up to that comment, leaves this kind of flat. Not that I'd like to be hit over the head with the message, "family is more important than gifts", but still.....all in all, I thought this could have been better thought out/written. My 2 1/2 year old loves it, though, so I guess that's what counts.

Ordered this for the "Sophia" our family. She loves all things Princess Sofia. A lovely Christmas story with a little moral message.

I liked this story. I thought it has a simple cute holiday storyline that blends the traditions of multiple holidays (christmas and Hanukkah ). It didn't bother me that they didn't use that word in the book. The message is still there and I think that by using a made up holiday that only exists in their world it might reach a wider audience with kids. Take the story for what it is and you will like it. Take it's lack of the Christmas word as a personal attack against your beliefs and you'll hate it.

Our daughter is in love with this book. Is an excellent length for bedtime stories, I can also see it being easy for her to read herself this one in a few years.

This series is for great character building and a sweet story as well. Sofia is a good role model for young girls.

Dad's missing, so let's all go out in a blizzard with one horse with stumpy legs and try to find him. Can't find him. Oh, let's pop in Aurora for 3 seconds with some lame advice. Seriously? Someone got paid to write this? The illustrations are beautiful, as always. My daughter liked it because, well she is 3 and loves Sofia, but really, for all of the Sofia loving parents out there.... save your $$

The embossing and texture on the cover is gorgeous, and with such lovely illustrations, I was really hoping that there would be a fantastic story to match.

While some Sofia the First books manage to be moralistic, and show character development (learning to believe in yourself, learning to admit mistakes, dealing with jealousy), there is no such redeeming quality in this pretty but bland book.

It would have been a great opportunity to push the "it's not the gifts you receive for the holiday, it's spending time with family that is most meaningful," theme but it's not really present in this story (I had some hope with a dialogue between Amber and Sofia early in the story but nothing really panned out). Instead there is no character development (for instance, Amber learning that family is more important than presents).

I understand that sometimes it is difficult to translate a 30-minute cartoon into a storybook format, however rather than simplifying the language of the dialogue, the author instead simplifies the story to the point that it's boring and confusing.

Beginners to Sofia cannot pick up this book and have a clue who these characters are, or their relationships to one another (Sofia mentions that she normally spends "Wassailia" with her mother, but this year she is at the castle). Even simple reminders that Sofia used to be a village girl before her mother married into the royal family, or that the amulet given to her by her stepfather allows her to talk to animals would clear up significant portions of the story.

Aurora is also pretty disappointing.
