Synopsis: Find out why Santa issues his first every TOY RECALL, and discover what happens next...Thingy came to live with us
last year, on Christmas Eve.
He looked so cute when he arrived,
but soon we wished he'd leave!
The Top of the Wardrobe Gang are a close-knit team of book-writing cuddly toys. When Santa Claus delivers Thingy, a small but very naughty cuddly toy, they aren't particularly happy about it.
In fact, after putting up with his bad behavior for months, they even decide to send him away to live somewhere else!
When Thingy's bad behavior is discovered by Santa, however, this unusual family find out just how much they all love their annoying new member, and what extreme lengths they will go to to keep him safe.
The Christmas Thingy came to join the Top of the Wardrobe Gang the group is excited to have a new friend. However, that quickly changes as Thingy continually causes trouble and plays mean jokes on others. The group begins to wish Thingy had never arrived in the first place. After Santa catches wind of all Thingy's bad behaviors he issues a recall. Now, the Top of the Wardrobe Gang is in a panic. They've grown quite fond of the little troublemaker. Can they keep Santa from taking him back?
On the Run from Santa is such a sweet fun-filled tale that teaches children the importance of accepting others for who they are and forgiving them even when they cause big problems. I love the bright and engaging illustrations. The characters are so creative and it's easy to fall in love with them. I am also a big fan of rhyming books and this one is absolutely wonderful. It's certain to become a fast holiday favorite.
I highly recommend picking up a copy.
