Funny and excitingI really enjoyed A Christmas Calamity by Susan Day. It's a fresh, funny book with an interesting topic, a great plot and very nice characters.
I could not stop laughing while reading it. The story is very exciting. There is some drama and a lot of fun.
The robot Alfie tries everything to steal Christmas. He does all kind of mean things, like injuring Santa. But a group of dogs works hard to restore the greatest moment of the year.
I'm now starting to read this ebook to my young kids and they love it. Sausan Day is now one of the best authors in our family. [by Luca Rossi]
Anthropomorphic dogs save ChristmasA Christmas Calamity! by Susan Day is a book in her Astro's Adventures series for children eight years old or older. In it a group of anthropomorphic dogs work together to save Christmas from the diabolical plot of an evil cat and an equally evil robot.
While written on a level too high for most younger children, I'm sure many of those under eight years of age would enjoy having it read to them. The level of action is enough to keep their interest and the villains, in spite of their efforts to ruin Christmas, are never vicious enough to frighten most children. I'm sure the sophomoric humor shown by the bad guys would appeal not only to children, but to anyone who has managed to retain a child-like sense of humor. For those of the age Day wrote A Christmas Calamity! for, reading it to themselves should be a treat.
For those in their pre-teens or older, the book might be too simplistic and cute for them to enjoy, or at least to admit they enjoy, although I suspect most of them would be happy to find an excuse to read it you those younger than themselves.
A fanciful book with a satisfying ending, I consider Susan Day's A Christmas Calamity! a fine children's' book and an excellent addition to the Astro's Adventures series. [by Robert Clark]
