A Visit from Santa Clops or The Fright Before Christmas
“Naughty or nice? Better think twice!” ‘Cuz Santa Clops is coming to town! ’Twas the fright before Christmas and all through the home, Not a critter was creeping, not even a gnome. The stockings were hung by the chimney with fear, In the hopes that Santa Clops would not come near. And thus begins this monstrous take on the holiday classic “The Night Before Christmas”. In the story “A Visit From Santa Clops or The Fright Before Christmas” the one-eyed cousin of Kris Kringle, stops by a sleeping family’s house on Christmas Eve. The startled and frightened father must confront Santa Clops and save Christmas for his children.
The Cave of Santa Clops
The Cave of Santa Clops is a rollicking holiday adventure in which a young boy explores the secret underground hideout of Santa Clops. It is the second Santa Clops book and it answers some questions that little ones might have about the cyclops Kringle. This rhyming picture book also has plenty of flying dino-penguins and holly-bats. Kids will love the action and adults will love the rhymes and message.
