Hurry, Santa!
By Julie Sykes
Illustrated by: Tim Warnes

Review by: Christa J Koch
Owner/ Operator of

     Could Santa miss Christmas? Is it possible? What if Santa's alarm did not go off on the most important day of the year? In this cute story "Hurry, Santa!" it happens. Santa's alarm clock does not go off. Luckily, Santa's little mouse comes to the rescue. While Santa is now running a little late, he can still make his rounds. At least he thinks he can, until he goes outside and finds his reindeer are gone. Things just get worse for poor Santa. He finds four of his eight reindeer and decides to just fly with them. Santa's luck just gets worse as the night goes on. From a stuck sleigh to fighting the rising sun, Santa rushes. He can still make it. Whew! Santa arrives back at the North Pole having made all his deliveries, at least he thought he did. An exhausted Santa grabs his sack and much to his dismay there was a present at the bottom. "Oh no, how awful!" He cried. "Iíve forgotten someone!" All the animals gather around and tell Santa that the present is for him. Santa hurries to open his gift, wondering what it could be. Can you guess what the animals gave Santa? A new alarm clock!
      Tim Warnes does an excellent job illustrating this jolly book. All the characters are cartoon like and wonderful to look at. They will certainly entice any child to want to read this book over and over. The colors are vivid and just the perfect use of bold colors.
      I recommend this book for preschool children ages 2-5. It may even become a new holiday favorite.
