This is another Christmas chapter book, which normally I question because children old enough for chapter books may be too old for Santa stories, but this one was all right. It's not terribly long (under 50 pages) and the chapters are short and engaging enough to hold the interest of a younger child. The illustrations didn't work on my desktop, but they did on my Kobo, so I'm assuming the ebook works properly. Maybe. I can't guarantee it. Overall it's a solid B-, but considering the Christmas selection I seem to have made for myself from NetGalley this year, it's not a bad effort.
