When Will went to Snowfields, a school to train children to work with Father Christmas himself and learn about the magic involved in Christmas and all the hard work that goes into making Christmas, I wished there was really a school like this I could have attended when I was young. The descriptions of the school grounds were so vivid I transported myself there and walked along side of the children as they explored the areas. The writer is very visual in the descriptions of everything including the people that work in the school and the students that go there with Will. You feel like you know the people from those descriptions and you can see them too.
While at the school, Will stumbles upon a mystery that could jeopardize Christmas. He is enlisted to help catch the culprits and save Christmas. The story makes you think like a detective and think about who could be participating in this mystery. I was really into this part because I always wanted to be a policeman when I was young because I was very good at solving things and finding things around our house and at our school.
I would recommend this book to all ages because when you sit down to read A Fraud at Snowfields you will be transported to a magical place full of adventure for young and old alike. I can’t wait until my new granddaughter is old enough for me to read it to her which will be in a few years. I am recommending this to my son to read to my other grandchildren as well. This is a five star read as far as I am concerned.
Christmas day is orchestrated by magic sleighs and covering spells. I particularly liked the idea of the design pyramids and the holographic Father Christmas booming out his message to Santa’s little helpers. This is a book that will put you in the Christmas Spirit even in the middle of a hot summer day!
The relationships between the children were lively and fun. It does a good job explaining what Christmas should really be about! Klock’s writing style is clear and entertaining and is an excellent book for the entire family!
Not to mention, there are some not so nice words like "damn", "idiot" and phrasing such as "I ain't serving folks like you" referring to the goblins, who sadly accept this discrimination "the goblin hung his head and walked out again". Here's another quote "like every secretary in the world, our dear Mrs. Script (the names throughout the book are ridiculous!) can't stand the thought that something is going on that she doesn't know about. I'd step around her if you don't want her nagging all the time." and at this point I just stopped reading because I was getting so frustrated with all not so subtle stereotypes I just COULD not share this with my daughter.
I understand that this is supposed to be for 9-12 yr olds but this is certainly NOT the way I want kids of any age to think is acceptable ways to treat each other or anyone that is "different" from themselves. I can not believe this is actually a Christmas book.
Honestly, if I can't get my money back I will be throwing this book in the trash (which is basically a crime in my home) because I would be embarrassed to share it with anyone!
