Kindergarten-Grade 3–From the best-selling writer of books for adults comes a tale of corporate greed. Young Chrissie, daughter of Santa and Mrs. Claus, describes her enviable life at the North Pole–until Christmas is bought out by Exmas Express and Santa's workshop is run like a business, with predictably disastrous results. When her father becomes dispirited and can't make his usual rounds, Chrissie takes over and saves the day. This is a sprightly and entertaining tale that begs to be read aloud, appropriately accompanied by slick digital illustrations. This modern-looking yet ultimately charming book should appeal to many kids.–E. M.
