A seasonal sensation that sends icicles down your spine, as you immerse yourself in the most magical Christmas tale!

This spectacular story is a real delight to behold, that brings laughter and cheer to all whilst amidst all the fun frivolities and humor contains poignant meaning within, such as selflessness and love.

This additional book to Candace Jane Kringle’s debut novel contains three stories, together with an engaging quiz (famous Santa’s for a hundred) and a sample of ‘North Pole High: A

A very cute little story from the author with a good insight into badboy Rudy's character. I love Candace Jane's writing especially the little section entitled 'How I Met Your Father' all about when Mrs Kringle met her husband. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read more from Candace Jane. Maybe a Valentine's book? ;-)

In the novel North Pole High, readers are introduced to several vibrant, wonderful characters that live on the North Pole alongside the title heroine (and teen daughter of Santa) Candycane Claus. In North Pole High: Beginnings, the author tells the backstories of moody rebel love interest Rudy Tutti, the magically talented personal chef to St. Nick, Chefy, and the adoring love story of how Santa found his missus.


4.5 stars, rounded up.

This novella is the perfect companion to North Pole High. I

3.5 stars.

This is not a novel, and so I didn't enjoy it like 'A Rebel Without A Claus'. The three stories are funny, but short and not about the North Pole Village.
But really I just love Candace Jane (Candycane) Kringle!
