My Thoughts

There have been a lot of stories surrounding how Christmas was created, but possibly none as sweet and tragic as this one. Because even if this is a children’s book, there’s a little bit of everything; smiles, tears, joy and magic.
Nikolas is a very sweet and lovely boy, he only wants to meet his father again so he will start the adventure of his life that will change him forever. Of course, he will not be alone, traveling together with the small talking mice called Miika, possibly the little grinch we all have inside, and who will make all the readers smile every time he speaks! And then we have the big and dangerous Blitzen, the moose, there’s always one on every Christmas story, am I right? I can not forget Pixie, of course, charming and dangerous, the perfect ally in the moments of need.
I have to say that I loved this story, the illustrations are a little bit dark but perfect for the mood of the story. 
I really don’t want to talk much about the plot of the book, only that it’s not the typical Christmas book. Also, I would not recommend it for little children, it’s a little bit too sad for them I think. But, for all other ages this is a book they will love, it will make you smile and cry but believe in the magic of Christmas.
