Masterful storytelling filled with spirited fun and excitement!,
This review is from: The Night Santa Got Lost: How NORAD Saved Christmas (Hardcover)
A brilliantly fresh and heart-warming look at a classic holiday story. Children of all ages will love this inspired rescue tale sparkling with imagination and action. Beautifully written and illustrated, Michael Keane's story is a wonderful compliment to "The Night before Christmas", as it takes children along on an exhilarating search for Santa Claus after a massive snowstorm puts the world's toy deliveries at risk. Packed with fun and excitement, my daughters were enthralled by the book, and have gone back to reread it over and over again.
Keane's ability to tell a mesmerizing children's story is impressive. Even more so, considering he's also the author of such smartly written works as, the Dictionary of Modern Strategy, and a fascinating biography of General George Patton, titled, "Blood, Guts and Prayer". Keane's storytelling range and ability to captivate readers of all ages and interests is tremendous.
A master storyteller, Michael Keane deserves rich praise for bringing new inspiration, excitement and joy to Christmas. Destined to become a classic, my family hopes `The Night Santa Got Lost' finds its way to film and television screens as a fun and action-packed animated feature. As a family that considers holiday films must see viewing, we can easily see this story as a future 3-D holiday hit!
