Hott Review:

I enjoyed The Last Santa. It’s a cute and fun adventure for the young and young at heart.
Personally, I found this story to be a bit like the relationship between God & Satan. I don’t know if this was intended but as I read the story I saw many similarities.
I did find the story lagging at times and I tended to skim, but then I’d have to re-read because I’d missed something.
Overall, this is a cute book that I doubt I’ll get any of my children to read.
