A New Christmas Classic

Frozen Olaf's Night Before Christmas Book & CD - Disney Book Group, Disney Storybook Art Team

Everyone's favorite snowman is back!  In Olaf's Night Before Christmas by Jessica Julius, the reader is once again reunited with lovable Olaf.  The story begins just like the Christmas classic, but by page two there is a twist to the tale.

Santa is coming to Arendelle!  Elsa and Anna are already fast asleep.  Olaf is working hard on counting his sheep.  Suddenly, a noise causes him to awaken quick.  He cannot believe his icicle eye.  It's jolly old St. Nick!

Will Olaf and Santa become the best of friends?  You will have to read the story to see how it ends!

I absolutely love this book!  Julius does an amazing job of changing a time honored Christmas story staple into a modern tale with a Frozen twist. I especially love that the story is told from Olaf's point of view.  His innocence is reminiscent of my own childhood Christmas memories.

Olga T. Mosqueda's illustrations are whimsical and enchanting.  I love that all of Santa's reindeer look like Sven!  Additionally, I like how each main character from Frozen has his/her own stocking that is decorated to resemble his/her clothing (or appearance) from the movie.

This book will delight readers of all ages and makes the perfect Christmas gift.  There is also a CD included in which Olaf himself reads the story.  Children can follow along with Olaf and discover the magic of Santa and Christmas together.
