It was Christmas Eve and the dino-tots were tucked up

in bed dreaming of Christmas magic . . .

But where were the jolly jingle bells?

The hearty "Ho! Ho! Ho!"?

And who was this green scaly creature

stomping through the snow?

YIKES, It's Santa-CLAWS and he's causing chaos.

Can ANYONE stop him and save the day?

Find out in this crazy Christmas caper.

The Review: What child doesn't enjoy a good Christmas story? Well, Yikes, Santa-CLAWS! is definitely a unique story that your child won't forget. 

Yikes, Santa-CLAWS! follows three dino-tots who are tucked up in bed but then they hear a loud noise downstairs. When they go to investigate, thinking it's Santa-Claus, they are soon in for a treat when instead of Santa-Claus, they find Santa-Claws reeking mischief. They see him eating the Christmas tree, pulling the crackers, opening presents and even scaring the cat. It's only when the real Santa-Claus turns up that Santa-Claws sees the error of his ways and tries to make amends. 

My daughter and I really enjoyed the story of Santa-Claws. This was the first time reading a book by Pamela Butchart and the dino-tots but I'd definitely like to see more. Yikes, Santa-CLAWS! is a fun-packed read with mischief on every page to keep you entertained, with very bright and fun illustrations to look at, and not to mention the cute dino-tots too.

In all, Yikes, Santa-CLAWS! is the perfect Christmassy read for you and your little ones, and I know it's one we will read again closer to Christmas.

Thank you to Bloomsbury Books for giving me the opportunity to review this book in exchange for an honest review.
