Best Christmas Book of 2006 - Manga Claus
I was sitting with my daughters in the kid's section of Barnes and Noble last night when I came across this book. It was a very amusing read, and it put a great twist on the Santa Claus story.
In the book, Santa is an Samaurai who fights off an army of evil, deranged teddy bears that invade the North Pole. It's written in comic book form, and my 7 year old had a kick saying the words 'Pow', 'Crack', 'Thwack', and 'Kablam!' It's not a dark or violent book. It's actually funny and light-hearted.
So if you like Anime art and Christmas, you'll really like this book. Your kids may just like it too. Also, all Christmas books are 50% off this week. (Damn, I sound like a commercial)
