Thanksgiving is this week which means that starting on Friday, the holiday season is upon us! (Or, if you're like me, the holiday season has been here since Halloween. Yes I'm one of 'those people.')
Check out our newest holiday book, The Santa Trap (October 2012)!
Bradley Bartleby is bad.
|The Santa Trap |
Written by Jonathan Emmett
Illustrated by Poly Bernatene
To avoid Bradley's wrath, his wealthy parents buy him whatever he wants. All the adults in Bradley's life are running scared--except for Santa Claus, who refuses to give him anything but socks. But Bradley vows to get what he deserves. If Santa won't give him the fits he wants, Bradley will just have to steal them.
It takes Bradley a full year to execute is plan. In the end, he trasforms his house into a trap so fearsome even his parents refuse to enter it. With dynamite, trapdoors, guillotines, and tigers in his path, Santa doesn't stand a chance.
Or does he?
