Nicholas St. North and the Battle of the Nightmare King by William Joyce
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Before he became Santa Claus, his name was Nicholas St. North—a daredevil swordsman without a care in the world. St. North eventually ends up seeking treasure at the legendary city of Santoff Claussen and the home of the wizard, Ombric Shalazar. But when North arrives, legends of riches have been driven away by terror and nightmares. Can St. North save the day and find the other Guardians in time?
This was a fantastic book for kids. I loved the illustrations and the side stories. It was original and lots of fun. I love the idea of Santa Claus having a past and eventually becoming who we know him as today. I'm excited to read the other installments and will perhaps see the movie that is coming out this fall.
