Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

When TV producer Bobbo Butler tries to save his ailing TV station, FUN-TV, with an American Idol-inspired talent contest intended to find the real Santa, the man himself—fresh from Guinn's The Autobiography of Santa Claus and How Mrs. Claus Saved Christmas—throws his hat into the ring. Guinn's clever premise draws on the historical roots of the commercialization of Christmas, and his Santa, who narrates, is sanguine when faced with the prospect of facing off against street corner Santas. (Oct.)

Review

THE GREAT SANTA SEARCH:

"Guinn's clever premise draws on the historical roots of the commercialization of Christmas, and his Santa, who narrates, is sanguine when faced with the prospect of facing off against street corner Santas."
--PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"I've read the two earlier books by Mr. Guinn (THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF SANTA CLAUS and HOW MRS. CLAUS SAVED CHRISTMAS), but I felt this one was the best. This was such a fun book to read. While the earlier books were based more on events in history, this one is set in the present. There were so many references to things common to us now - PlayStation 3, CD burners, MP3 players and iPods. Oprah and Randy, Paula and Simon from American Idol made guest appearances. It was fun to see Santa adapt to the 21st century!"
--Lynne's Little Corner of the World

THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF SANTA CLAUS:

"A book that deserves classic status."
--The Dallas Morning News

"Delightful."
--Memphis Commercial Appeal

"Charming."
--The Kansas City Star

"The Autobiography of Santa Claus is a great tale with an intriguing premise. It is a heartwarming and fun Christmas read."
--Squeeky-Clean Reviews

"This Christmas tale combines solid historical fact with a fun, enchanting story that will make anyone a believer in Santa Claus. It's a great book for children who are questioning the existing of Santa Claus and teaches all readers, big and small, the real meaning of Christmas."
--The Examiner

HOW MRS. CLAUS SAVED CHRISTMAS:

"A humorous, well-written historical romp."
--Atlanta Women

"Rich in Christmas-y detail."
--Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"Both educational and amusing."
--Library Journal

THE CHRISTMAS CHRONICLES (all three novels in one volume):

"This elegant paperback volume makes for a delightful holiday gift for just about anyone on your Christmas shopping list. Whether it’s reading through 17 centuries of Santa’s autobiography peppered with Christmas magic, discovering how Mrs. Claus and a group of people saved Christmas from being extinct or hopping onto a sleigh ride ‘through the history of Christmas in America’, reading the book will bring Santa’s infectious good cheer into your Yuletide festivities."
--Time Out

"All three books are excellent volumes and well worth sharing with your children. In fact, Guinn cleverly separates each book into 24 chapters, allowing parents who are so inclined to read them to their children one chapter at a time, beginning on December 1 and finishing on Christmas Eve. I dearly love these books."
--Evertime Realms
