Kirby Puckernut and the Christmas Surprise

About the Book: Kirby Puckernut is Santa’s cleverest little elf. While dreaming up marvelous toys for good girls and boys, Kirby has his best idea yet – a real elf in every home, all through the holidays, spreading Christmas Magic! Santa finds the perfect family and allows Kirby to serve as the test elf for the first momentous visit. Fun and adventure are at every turn, but not everything goes as planned…

Will Kirby’s idea be a success?

Mymcbooks review: A MUST for every household for Christmas. Watch out for my review coming soon.

About the Author:  Alicia Richardson has created a new Christmas classic with her children’s book, Kirby Puckernut and the Christmas Surprise. Alicia Richardson resides in Salt Lake City, Utah, with her husband and four children. She has always had a flair for storytelling, and has given life to a special little elf named Kirby Puckernut.

From Alicia: This magical story came about when Santa sent one of his elves, Kirby Puckernut, to live in our home at Christmastime. Kirby was creative, very fun and persistent. It wasn’t enough for him to simply observe our family and help deliver my children’s gifts – he wanted to get to know them. Our family has enjoyed the magical days of Kirby’s visits year after year. Come share in our tradition – invite Kirby and the Els Mere elves into your home this Christmas season! Visit author’s website

  3. Your review made me want to check out the website where I discovered a couple of surprises….a video trailer (Yes, I believe!) and a hand-painted resin elf that comes in a crafted wooden etched box.

  6. I love Christmas stories and this sounds like a very sweet book, perfect for sharing with my students.

  7. This sounds like a wonderful and endearing book. We have an “elf sitter” (doll) that comes to our house every November 1 to watch and be sure my son is being good so he can report back to Santa. My son is 11 now but it has become such a wonderful tradition that he still wants to continue with the “sitter”. My nieces are 4 and 5, they would love this book as they have an “elf sitter” that visits there house as well. Definitely going to be looking for this for them for Christmas!

  9. What a fantastic idea! I would love an elf in my house. I know my Goddaughter would think it is cute to have an elf. She would play with him all day.

  10. I just received my “Elf on the Shelf” so this book would go great with that story. My students have already been told that a visitor will be in our classrooms every day after Thanksgiving break. Maybe we could name him Kirby? Thank you for the opportunity!

  11. I love the joy and faith that surround Christmas. My grandkids have Elf on The Shelf ad I know for a fact they would welcome Kirby into their hearts as well as their homes during the Holidays. I love starting new traditions. Thanks so much for this post and opportunity.

  15. how can you not b believe in the Christmas elves after looking around the authors site and the blog tour. the magic of the season should start with this

  16. SO i need to know what happens NOW lol!! The illistrations is the book are BEYOND gorgeous!! This is one of the books that needs to be put away with the Christmas decorations, displayed on the mantel and read together as a family on Christmas Eve, with some yummy hot chocolate and a roaring fire. THIS is the type of beautiful story that Christmas Family traditions are born from! Are you sure the author isn’t an elf herself, in disguise, because looking at her you just FEEL Christmasy!!!!
