This Christmas Sabrina's shopping list is a lot bigger
than her bank account. In order to earn some extra cash, she
lands herself a part-time job as one of Santa's elves in the
local shopping mall. Sabrina conjures up loads of toys to
calm down cranky kids. The only problem is that she has zapped
the toys from the real Santa's carefully calculated stock,
and they're not easily replaced. If Sabrina is going to save

have to admit to being somewhat of a fan of Nancy Krulik's

rare as less and less children seem to be brought up to believe
in the jolly present giver.
is one of those books that I will certainly be reading again
in the future - possibly one I'll get out every Christmas
for a good laugh.
has already made one reader merry before Christmas, and I'm
sure many more young readers will be having a merrier Christmas
thanks to her engaging writing.
