Maybe I read this book a bit to late but whatever the season i am sure this book will always be enjoyable. It is funny and full of unexpected friendships. The excitement of the plot grips you from the start.Another thing is that this proves that word disabled people is wrong, because people who are in wheelchairs or have any other conditions are just as able as any other person.
This book follows the tale of disabled and mum-less William Trundle and his father Bob Trundle. They’re probably Christmas’s number one fan. They are both excitedly awaiting the Christmas that they don’t know will change their lives.Far away in the North Pole Santa Claus and his elf’s are working 24/7 to get every single child on the earth a present-all the good ones at least. But then the elf’s uncover something extremely unexpected, a giant egg! They rush it over to Santa who realises that for this egg to survive someone would have to sit on it. Someone with a big enough behind….
That person turns out to be Santa, who’s illustration by Shane Devries is remarkable and filled with humor, he sits on the egg throughout the preparation for Christmas. Until the day comes when the egg hatches and what should stomp out of the egg but a baby dinosaur!
