Moore's Code: Santa's Secret Revealed Paperback – September 29, 2014

About the Author
Chautona Havig lives in the shadow of the Sierra Mountains, and that sounds a lot prettier than “the barren, blistered end of creation,” which is really what California’s Mojave Desert looks like. Life in the desert is interesting. She even enjoys four seasons there—hot, cold, hotter, and windy. In the desert, those do count as seasons. When not dreaming up more antics for Andy and the elves at the North Pole, Chautona writes in a wide variety of genres—predominately for the Christian fiction market. She lives in a very tiny house with her husband, seven of her nine children, and a dog. Sergeant. Sergeant promises that he has never and will never try to capture Santa. Ever.

This is the cutest little book I have read in a long time. The tie-ins of all the extra characters made the story that much better. I don’t want to give much away and ruin the story but I will say that I had a smile on my face the whole time. Young Andy Heath is the kind of spirited boy you would expect to find in the middle of a tale like this. I did find his tantrums a little tiring at times, but that had to be included in order to show his change throughout the story. I thought I would enjoy the moments with him and Santa the best, but the real story kicked off with Mistletoe and Merry Clause as well as the other elves. All they did to find Santa and keep the castle safe really made the story.
One of the most fun I have had reading a Christmas story in a long time.
Our family doesn't "do" Santa Claus (never has -- and our oldest is 33 :-)) -- and even in my own childhood, I feel that Santa was presented with a sort of "benign neglect" -- nobody DENIED his existence, but nobody LIED either. And our children never acted like Andy, either! But even so, I was able to put aside these differences from my reality and enter in to the story.
And I thought the story itself was so cute and well done! It was just fun. I enjoyed it all -- Andy's "reality," the whole Santa and the elves' homeland -- the elves adjusting to the loss of Santa... Chautona's twist on the Clement Moore tale was such a good idea -- I had known that poem since I was tiny, and what she did with it was something I NEVER had thought of!
There were, I think, a few small grammar (or such) errors, but they were so minor that I really barely noticed. I thought the story was well-written and easy to read.
I was given a free copy of the book. This is my honest opinion.
I received this book directly from the author. And I thank her in advance for her generosity. However, I was not compensated otherwise and my opinions are my own. Now you know, and knowing's half the battle ;)
"Grownups, even tiny ones, made no sense" thought Andy, the small boy of Chautona's new Holiday book Moore's Code
Andy is a precocious little boy, an only child. A bit on the nerdish side, and quite intelligent, he spends the time prior to Christmas trying to figure out how to kidnap Santa based largely on a thorough study of Chistmas Media, including Clement Clark Moore's Night Before Christmas.
While all this is going on, Santa is gearing up for his yearly sojourn. We get a sneak peak into just how he and the elves do that off an on throughout the book, as well as how Santa's cousin Scrooge is living just down the way.
As Andy deals with trying to stay off the PNL ( the Perpetual Naughty List) he is also growing up and trying to figure out just what to do as the elves and Mrs. Merry Claus are trying to pick up the slack from the missing St. Nick.
Will Scrooge come around? Will Merry take over as Santa? Will GPS get installed in the sleigh when and if Santa and the reindeer ever come back? You know, if you've ever read my reviews, that I try not to give away spoilers, so you'll just have to read Moore's Code and find out.
This is a great book about maturity and understanding; faith, hope and Love. Maybe grownups do make sense after all. Merry Christmas
The star in this book is a smart, spoiled brat whose parents need major parenting classes. Why they ever chose to become parents is beyond my capacity to understand, but, unfortunately, there seem to be a plethora of parents like them in this country. If not for Andy's Grandpa Heath, there would be no hope for this poor, undisciplined child. I have faith that Grandpa will be a major player in eventually getting his son and grandson on the right track if there is a sequel. What Andy did to Santa and the repercussions at the North Pole will have you reading to the end of the book. Enjoy!
