Good try, but it needs more work.

I was given this book by the author to review, so I may be more constructive about my criticism than usual. I want to start by saying that I really respect the author's creativity in making the book, and courage in sending it out to the world. That's a hard thing to do, especially when someone like me will tear it apart. This is absolutely not a bad book, but it's made by an amateur and it shows.

Wow. Where do I start with this one? It's illustrated through photog

Finding Santa: The Adventure of Greedy Elf tells the story of an elf who is overtaken by greed when he discovers a discarded toy while accompanying Santa on his Christmas toy delivery trip. The illustrations for this book have a retro charm that will appeal to readers of many different generations. One of my favourite aspects of reading this book was taking the time to look carefully at the illustrations and really take in the small details. The author has clearly put a lot of effort into creati ...more

I read this with my 9 and 2 year old sons. The photograph style pictures are very cute and unique but the story itself is a little strange at parts. My 9 year old was confused as to how Greedy Elf got his name, that part of the story didn't make much sense. The incident leading up to him becoming greedy wasn't exactly an incident of greed, more like anger or resentment. The story itself was a little jumpy and vague at times. We did enjoy the clues towards the end but I feel it would of been more ...more

Finding Santa: The Adventure of Greedy Elf is a cute tale that will delight four and five-year-old children as they wait and wonder if Santa will be visiting them on Christmas Eve. The story focuses on an elf who no longer wants to gift toys to children anymore. This Grinch-y elf hatches a plan to shrink Santa and takeover his workshop. The story is engaging and encourages young readers to solve clues to help Santa. A great read in anticipation of Christmas.

Cute

I loved this bok , I love that it includes the reader in helping find Santa, my 5 year old loved helping figure out the clues! It was a cute story and I liked that it used pictures because that made it more realistic for my daughter!

Overall nice.

It is hard to follow. Jumps around too much. It doesn't seem to flow well. Don't see how Greedy (name) applies. Storyline is good though and cute.

It's ok

The clues are cute and the idea isn't bad. I just wish it had been executed a bit better. The illustrations are awkward but charming in their way.
