    This was a good read, with lots of adventure and good character development. There were some loose ends that didn't feel fully resolved to me, and the book seemed to run out of steam at the end. ...

    I don't really read Christmas books (apart from A Christmas Carol) - mainly because they tend to be chick lit / romance and a little too cheesey and obvious for me. However, I spotted Billy Christmas in the London Review of Books and as soon as the phrase 'forces of evil', and somethin...

    Surprisingly good! I was really caught up in the characters: Billy, Katherine, even Robert. I was intrigued by the premise, and found several of the secondary characters fascinating as well. There were a number of elements in the denouement that I felt could have been better explain...

    Billy Christmas is a fun, magical story. Billy is tasked with solving clues each day to find his father. Interactive as the reader becomes involved helping Billy along the way. The story draws you in and you can't put it down. ...

    An amazing and rare book. There is more to this book than first appears. Ursula LeGuin once said that a great book must have moral basis. (I can't remember her exact words but that's the gist of them.) It elevates the book to more than an adventure story. I detected those elements in t...

    This is a fantastic children's book and my boys absolutely loved it. It had a lot of adventure and fun and my kids begged me to read to them each night. It really was a fun read for the holidays. I would definitely recommend this book. **I received this book through a Goodreads give...

    Although the title and the fact that it takes places during the Christmas season this is not a Christmas story! It is so much more. Sometimes it's whimsical, sometimes heart rending, but always interesting. This is what could definitely be the start of a series, with exciting possibili...
