BOOK REVIEW: The Knights Before Christmas by Joan Holub


A humorous retelling of the classic holiday poem—with a medieval twist!

'Twas December 24th, and three brave (but somewhat clueless) knights were just settling in for the night when out on the drawbridge, there arose such a clatter! The knights try everything to get rid of this unknown invader (Santa Claus!), a red and white knight with a fleet of dragons . . . 

This parody of Clement Clarke Moore's well-known poem "A Visit From Saint Nicholas" is silly good fun—sure to become a holiday classic of a different kind.

REVIEW BY: Angelina, age 9 years, 4 months


This book was really good because I LOVE Santa Claus so much. 

It is about three knights that have really funny names, but you will have to read it to find out what the names are. " It made me laugh until my tummy hurt from laughing so hard! Santa ended up coming and throwing candy in to the air saying "Merry Christmas"!!

I loved all of the knights because they were so funny and clueless about Santa. My favorite part is when Santa came because I absolutely adore and love Santa so much. 

I recommend this book to anyone who likes different stories about Santa and Christmas. I think this book would be great to read on Christmas Eve with your families. 

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for all ages!
