In the tradition of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and The Night Before Christmas, the award-winning Christmas classic introduces Blink, the most famous elf ever, who saves Christmas and introduces Santa to his elves. The tale is filled with Holiday magic and inspires the true spirit of Christmas. A family tradition to celebrate the start of the Holiday Season.
Many, many Christmases ago, Santa discovers that Mrs. Claus has always wanted a Christmas tree to decorate. The following Christmas Season, he brings home the very first indoor Christmas tree for her. The Clauses love their tree, but they forget to water it because they are so busy preparing for Christmas. The night before Christmas Eve, the tree is almost lost, but a mysterious elf with a magical blinking red hat saves Christmas, and teaches Santa and Mrs. Claus that all living things need care and attention.
This book is beautiful! My ten year old sat down and read it to our six year old . That in and of itself is a Christmas miracle! They loved every page. With bright illustrations and a great message about Christmas trees and fire safety, this book is a keeper. It was just the right length for a read aloud. It has Santa and Mrs. Clause, elves and their pet puppy all rolled into a delightful tale. We highly recommend!
