I reviewed the first book in this children’s series here.
From the description of this book:
An evil sorceress lurks in Arboria, terrorizing the Orna folk while cruising the Tinsel Canals in her abominable ship, surrounded by wicked creatures. Her goal: to banish Christmas from the Tree World and reduce the beautiful snow of winter to mud, mud that she can use to make her slaves, and worse. The evil queen is willing to go any lengths, including war, to bring about her plan. Who can stop her from building a mud empire that will forever bury the true meaning of Christmas? Can Jason and Kim discover a way to stop the mad queen before she creates her WIDGMUS WORLD?
In a sequel that gives a different perspective on the world of Arboria, one is reminded of the seeming endless attacks on Christmas. Bush offers yet another fun-filled story that will point the reader to Christ and the real reason for why we celebrate Christmas.
There is much in here that leads to discussion from a Christian worldview that will also help to teach your child how to properly respond to those who refuse to acknowledge the Christ of Christmas. In the end, the reader is left with a wonderful story, vividly told that will leave the reader to his or her imagination regarding the world of Arboria while here in our world, they will find that they have been thinking long and hard of the true meaning of Christmas.
This was a fun read and one I think children of all ages will enjoy. I recommend this to any and all looking for a fun Christmas read chock full of meaning.
