This book was very magical to read. The first thing that striked me was the amazing names that the elves had. Many were mentioned in the first chapter and then continued so as the book progressed. Examples of this are Golden Ball, Holly Ivy and White Christmas the V. I felt it added to the magic of the North Pole and it puts a smile on your face right from the beginning.
I enjoyed the fact it was from Noel, the elfs, point of view. Following the new Santa’s transition and training was good to read. The descriptions of the North Pole and the functioning of it were imaginative and done well.
It’s very well written. I liked the characters and the way the North Pole has been described. The only negatives I would say is that some chapters are a bit too long for my liking. Also, that the elves ages seemed to be a bit confusing to start with. It took quite a while for this to be explained later on in the book. There were also a few grammar errors.
Overall it was a very good book and I would definitely recommend it.
My rating: 4/5*
