While the winter season can be cold and gruelling, there’s no denying the fun that can be had at Christmas time. Yes, Christmas shopping is often the pits, but when all is said and done there’s nothing better than the joy of Christmas morning. And so in this vlog (the last until after the new year) I go all out and embrace the Christmas spirit. This week, I’m recommending Dean Koontz’s children’s Christmas story, Santa’s Twin.
For newcomers unfamiliar with this project, The ZS Roe Vlog is my place to share the best in storytelling. Every two weeks I’ll recommend a novel, short story, poem, or film, and bring you along to the places in which these stories have particular significance.
So, without further adieu, I give you:
Here is Dean Koontz’s children’s Christmas story, Santa’s Twin. While best known for his suspense novels, Koontz is also an occasional children’s writer. In Santa’s Twin we hear the story of Charlotte and Emily, two little girls on a mission to save Christmas. After discovering that Santa’s mischievous twin brother Bob has stolen Santa’s sleigh and is delivering cat poop, mud pies, and broccoli instead of Christmas presents, the two girls fly to the rescue, and eventually find themselves all the way at the North Pole.
What has Bob Clause done with his brother Santa?
