HGG- Santa's Magic Key

Recently I was sent two great books for kids. One is The 12 Sleighs of Christmas
Which elf will build the coolest sleigh for the Christmas ride? SANTA will decide!
When the elves discover that Santa's sleigh is in a terrible state, they let their imaginations go wild - and soon there are sleighs of every kind, inspired by big rigs, motorcycles, zeppelins, and much more!

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site and the celebrated illustrator of Michael Chabon's The Astonishing Secret of Awesome Man, team up for spirited vehicular silliness and classic Christmas cheer in this turbo-charged read-aloud destined to become a holiday classic.

Sherri Duskey Rinker is the author of #1 New York Times bestsellers Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site and Steam Train, Dream Train . She lives in St. Charles, Illinois.

Jake Parker is an illustrator based in Utah. He has worked on animated films, comics, and picture books, including The Little Snowplow and The Astonishing Secret of Awesome Man .

For ages 3-5

The second book I received was Santa's Magic Key I love this book. I gave it to my grandchildren last night so they will have the key all ready for Christmas Eve. Its so exciting to see their faces when they see the key and read the book.
The key is quite a nice size and its a bit on the heavy side. The story of the Magic Key is great.

It's an age-old question. How does Santa get into every house around the world… no matter what doors, locks, chimneys, or windows exist?

Find the answer to this question in Santa's Magic Key! In this unforgettable holiday story, a boy realizes on Christmas Eve that his new house does not have a chimney, and with the post office closed and Santa coming bythe end of the night, he has no way of telling Santa. But when the boy finds a mysterious key, he'll soon discover just how this key will solve his problem.

Add a new classic to your holiday collection with this magical tale that reveals how Santa can always spread gifts and joy on Christmas Eve by using his magical key. This beautiful book comes with Santa's special key just for you to hang on your Christmas tree as an ornament or outside your door!

I love the pictures in this book. Such as this one:
Every picture in this book is so vivid and colorful. Not like other books, with the drawn pictures look.
Santa also leaves a note like this for the kids:

One lucky person will win this book called Santa's Magic Key and I am going to set the closing for this Dec. 16 so it gets to the winner in time.

Hope you enjoy and get your entries in. Open to Canada only (Sorry US) Good luck everyone.
