Santa Claus vs The Aliens

Santa Claus vs The Aliens by James Cardona

 About the Book: When Edwin cuts his finger, dripping a few drops of blood onto a bone-colored tracking device he becomes a target of a group of aliens that think he holds the secret to the human race’s defeat. The only person who seems to know what to do is a fat man wearing a Santa Claus suit and he somehow seems to know just a little too much. Who is he and why does he know so much? Where did the aliens come from and what are they after? Can a Fourteen year old wandering the cold, empty streets of Manhattan late on Christmas Eve and an odd character dressed as Santa Claus stop the aliens, save the planet and discover the true meaning of Christmas?

  2. What a fun title and clever cover. I’ve recently read three fun Christmas stories about the holiday, A Vampire At Christmas, A Zombie Christmas, and Santa’s Little Helper about a very bad elf. This would be the perfect next read for my collection. I’d be thrilled to win.
    Thanks so much for the giveaway and a joyous holiday to ya’ll!

  3. The title alone makes me laugh! This sounds like a great book to read to the grandkids at bedtime.
    My youngest son was active in FIRST Robotics – we went to the championships one year in Atlanta.
