Review of The Paper Bag Christmas
As a member of the Harper Collins book review team, I’m reviewing The Paper Bag Christmas.
This is a story about a little boy and his brother who visit Santa Claus, but end up finding much more. When they learn that Santa is also a pediatric oncologist, the boys spend the rest of December volunteering with him at their hospital. Here they meet a number of colorful patients, including two special ones they are put in charge of; a non-stop talking boy looking to become a wise man, and a lonely little girl needing someone to believe in her.
I’ve not had a lot of time to read fiction lately, but I love Christmas books so I took a chance on reading this one. It turned out to be a great way for me to slow down and take an enjoyable break. The Paper Bag Christmas is a small hardcover book that is both easy to read and very well written. By easy to read, I mean that the story captures you from the start and you want to keep turning the pages until suddenly you find yourself at the end.
This book tugs at the heartstrings and is such a perfect Christmas read. Once I started reading it, I couldn’t put it back down. I was in love with the characters and wanted them all to have a happy ending. This is a must read book and I highly recommend it.
