Book Review: A Stranger At Christmas

The Christmas lights are mysteriously disappearing from the streets and homes of Porterlance.

Will Santa be able to find the town in the dark?

"A Stranger At Christmas (Porterlance Series)", written by James McCullough and illustrated by Dennis Cox, is a delightful rhyming Christmas story for kids.

This book has just been published for the Kindle and the color illustrations will look great on the new Kindle Fire!

Who Took The Lights?
On Christmas Eve, a wicked stranger comes to Porterlance with a plan to ruin Christmas. He cuts the colorful Christmas lights on all the houses in town. He hopes that Santa will not be able to find the town in the dark.

Ben and Sarah get a glimpse of the stranger cutting the lights on their house. The stranger runs and hides but the kids have an idea that will save Christmas.
Thanks to these quick-thinking children, Santa found the town of Porterlance and all the children received their presents.

But that is not the end of the story. Santa confronts the evil stranger and the story has a very nice surprise ending!

My Thoughts
Kids will love the rhyming text and colorful illustrations in this book. I read this book on my Kindle and viewed the color illustrations on my Kindle for PC application (no, I don't have a Kindle Fire....yet.) The formatting looks great with a color picture and two lines of text on each screen view.

This is a great book for Santa to leave on Mom or Dad's ereader. I promise you the kids will love it! Recommended for ages three to eight.

FYI ~ I ordered this book from Amazon.Com when it was offered as a free digital download. Please check the current price before ordering.
