A Trip for Mrs. Claus , Book 2 in The Santa Switch Series.


Just about four years ago I was lucky enough to receive an absolutely Enchantingly adorable bookThe Santa Switch Written by Laura Lee Scott and beautifully illustrated by Cheryl Crouthamel. Well it looks like this team did it again… but before we talk about book 2 I have to say if you missed “The Santa Switch” go get it now I can’t say enough about it -It’s destined to be a Christmas “CLASSIC”

                A Trip For Mrs. Claus




When reading a children’s book I look for four things that I think make it exceptional.

1. It should be something an adult wants to read to a child

2.I really think the pictures or illustrations should be unique and colorful. To give the child something to have fun with.

3.Obviously the story but whats more I like a book that is well written in rhyme,I just think it’s more fun for the kids’

4.I always like when the book has an underlying lesson to learn from

With the well written  rhythmic Verse the colorful and adorable illustration the team of Laura Lee Scott and Cheryl Crouthamel have once again created a very fun and compelling children’s book for the Christmas season.An extension of their first book they bring back the loving Jessica to teach the lesson of giving , generosity and selflessness.

Once again Jessica ( Mrs. Claus) has shown what kind of woman she is.It’s the day after Christmas which to say the least is a pretty busy day for the Clauses. But does that slow her down ? Does she decide to just take it easy for a few days? Nope, she’s up with the Sun busily catching up on her work on a much needed app on her computer. Next instead of starting that well jesses tearsdeserved  Post holiday break she’s off with her Mousey sidekick  on a whirlwind trip (once again) around the globe visiting the less fortunate as she delivers a bit of her own touch of warmth to those in need. Showing to one and all the spirit of the Holiday season.To put the needs of others before your own. So only when she feels she has done all she can does Jessica join her family (In a Secret location) for a little R&R…

That’s all I can tell you about the story itself. But needless to say “A Trip For Mrs. Claus” is the perfect book to read to the kiddies ( after The Santa Switch of course)leading up to the big day.It’s not just the colorful well written pages but the silly pictures themselves I think the kids will love. The kids will start to wonder what does go on up there at the North Pole when all the work is done.What do those Elves do for fun and how bout’ those Reins? Do They really Vacation in a secret location?

Part of the fun of this book is searching each page for Jess’s little Mousey friend and all the other cute little things going on in the background.The only thing I don’t like about this future Christmas Classic is  unfortunately this one is only available as an ebook for now but never fear I’m sure Passionflower Press is all over it.

So if you are searching for a Charmingly delightful and “Enchanting “tale for the Christmas Season look no further

    So you love it so much you had to say it Twice?

  2. Laura Lee Scott says:

    Thank you, Dick, for another truly exquisite and heartfelt review of The Santa Switch book series, and the new book, “A Trip for Mrs. Claus”! In the same way that I only take a very small amount of credit for the way my kids are turning out, I feel the inspirational messages in these two books only needed an outlet and a “voice”. It’s such am honor that Cheryl and I can help bring them to life! On a related note, I completely understand why readers want a hardcover version of “A Trip for Mrs. Claus,” and am working on getting that request fulfilled; in the meantime, I hope readers can enjoy the ebook version, which turned out beautifully, and is available on any device with a Kindle app.

  3. Laura Lee Scott says:

    Eileen, I adore you and am so very appreciative of your continued support for our modern Jessica Claus! Thank you! Someday, I do hope we can meet in person, as a hug is definitely in order! 🙂

  4. This book looks so adorable! I think it would be great for any parent to give their child for Christmas. And I would agree that a hardcover copy would be nice. Many children like to hold the book in their hands and look at the pictures. It would be beautiful in a large hardback book! Thank you for the wonderful review. Makes me want to get a copy of both books now:)

    • Laura Lee Scott says:

      Hi Charity,

      Thank you for reading Dick’s awesome review and for your very sweet comments! So you know, there is a hardcover of the first book (“The Santa Switch” available through my website — http://www.jessicaclaus.com, and also in select stores in the Pacific NW seasonally. And, of course, there are lovely ebook versions of both books. That said, I totally agree that “A Trip for Mrs. Claus” is in need of a printed book edition I just need to figure out the best way to do it! In the meantime, I’d love to hear what you think of the books, so I hope you have entered Dick’s contest and I wish you much luck! 🙂
