Creepy Christmas - Jaimie Admans

Source: Personal Copy

Strange things are occurring in the neighbourhood. A mysterious snowfall, one Santa too many, and eyes of coal that watch you wherever you go.

 

Ten-year-old Kaity is busy trying to get rid of her mum's creepy new boyfriend and reunite her divorced parents, but her curiosity gets the better of her when she meets the new mall Santa and his enchanting daughter Blizzard. Can Kaity help them save Christmas from being destroyed by Anti-Claus - a pretend Santa who is a permanent member of the naughty list?

 

It's Christmas in the village of Chelferry, but this year the snowmen can move, the fairy won't stay on top of the Christmas tree, and if you listen closely to the musical Christmas cards, you can hear the faint sound of screaming over the Jingle Bells...

Creepy Christmas is a fast and ferocious tale about how Christmas is being sabotaged by two evil men. Anti Christmas and Seth, but when ten year old Kaitie meets Santa and his daughter Blizzard at the mall she doesn't realise that she is now caught up in an investigation to stop Anti Clause ruining Christmas. 

 

I honestly believe if I read this book to my eight year old he would actually be quite frightened. It gets pretty intense at times and I got a bit creeped out myself haha. Not something I was expecting at all, but I can honestly see teenagers lapping it up. 

 

Christmas in an entirely different context. Great Twist.
