What awaits these naughty children is much worse than a lump of coal in there stockings.

This very short story has a cute premise upon which it turns.

Synopsis: "There's been an accident at Santa's Workshop. He needs to desperately replace what he lost at the North Pole. This Christmas horror story will make you think twice about being on the naughty list. Christmas horror short story."

My Review: This is something a little on the darker side for those who may not be so in the Christmas spirit. It was a very short read, and I would have loved to have had more back story and even more after as well. It is an interesting take on the elves and the

I totally dig the idea of this story. However, to me it didn't read as a short story... more like the beginning of something bigger that the author just decided to never finish... I would LOVE if the author decided to create a complete novel along the lines of this storyline. Definitely, my kind of tale.

This book is far from 23 pages. It took all of a minute to read, was probably 5 pages. The "story" is about how elves are found for Santa's shop. There was nothing entertaining, or informative at all. The story wasn't developed, and don't ask me what age range it's intended for... Not for adults, and if it's made to scare children I have a feeling they would be as unamused as i was.

Free for the Kindle. A quick 3 minute read that is a Christmas story NOT for kids.
Tells what really happens to naughty children and it isn't getting a lump of coal.
Glad I didn't pay money for this.

This very short story has become a holiday tradition in my family! It is a quick cautionary tale about just what Santa does to punish naughty kids (hint, it isn't lumps of coal in their stocking). We read it to one another each year. Again, it is very short, but quite creative and fun!

In this short story Santa is not the normal Santa you've read about anywhere else. I definitely want to stay on the nice list!

I knew this was going to be a short story...but this was way too short! I hate giving only 2 stars but this story really needed a little more!

What an interesting concept. It would be amazing if the author built on this and made it a bit longer. Overall, enjoyed the three minutes it took me to read this super short story.
