The King of Christmas

Another great addition to the continuing adventures of Gus, the Unicorn Prince, and his friend Jesse.

Three little pigs visit Santa's reindeer a few days before Christmas and soon they are all sick with colds! Will Christmas be cancelled since the reindeer can't pull Santa's sleigh? Or, will Gus and Jesse be able to convince the Unicorn King to let Unicorns pull the sleigh?

A wonderful reminder of the true meaning of Christmas, fun for all ages. I hope that Ms. Hesse continues to write more adventures for Gus and Jesse!

I received an audio version of this book through Audiobook Boom! and chose to review it.

A good holiday story for kids

The King of Christmas is a good holiday story for kids with three little pigs, Santa and his reindeer, magical unicorns, and a very special baby in the manger.

The audiobook is read by the author who does a good job, though she differentiates the characters by saying the character name instead of by giving them individual voices. My children were bothered a little by the reading of the book name and chapter at the beginning of each short chapter. This might make it ideal for a child who is reading along with the audiobook however.

I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook. This is my honest and voluntary review..

Another cute addition to the series

I've listened to a few in this series and they all have similar charm. They're not really my cup of tea nor were they intended to be. (It might surprise you that I'm not 7). My 6 and 8 year old daughters however really enjoy listening to these stories in the car. Especially this one with sound effects, unicorns, and Christmas -- that's a combination that's hard to beat that those ages.

Heads up: there are some religious themes but no more than you'd expect to find in any other Christmas story.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
