"Noonan writes exhilarating fantasies tinged with just enough of real life situations and
he never once stoops to 'dumbing down' his audience."
- Grady Harp

"Full of wonder, adventure, magic and make-believe, it's all that a children's book
should be."
- Sue Light

About the author:
Sean Noonan was born in Yorkshire and was fortunate to grow up in different parts of
Europe. After attending St Andrews University, Sean decided he preferred a life of
adventure and so spent the next 20 years, as a salty seadog in the Merchant Navy, sailing the world and being amazed by its variety of wonders.

Finally he 'swallowed the anchor' and came ashore working as a Superintendent and a
Consultant and now focuses his efforts on improving the marine industry. Sean is married to Liz, with two adorable muses for kids, Elannah and Sam. They live in Scotland and are looking forward to entertaining children of all ages in the years ahead.

This is an adorable book for kids (and Adults!!)

Elannah and Sam have great adventures in their dreams!!

They head to their dream tree house on Christmas eve, where they meet up with great friends like Rodger the Badger and Pokey the Hedgehog.

One of their new friends, the Bridge Troll, has never celebrated Christmas before. Elannah and Sam want to make it extra special for him, so they go to many lengths to get all the right items for a Christmas Party.

Elannah and Sam have a couple small problems along the way that they overcome together with their friends.

I really liked the story and Ben Jr gave it two thumbs up!!!

~~All opinions expressed are 100% mine. I was not paid for this review. I did receive a copy of the book to read thanks to Bostick Communications~~
