When Santa’s caravan falls from the sky, he must recover his invisible reindeer before the evil Goblynch turns him into a chocolate Santa. Check out this exciting Christmas story by bestselling author, Cornelia Funke.

Santa’s Crash Landing

A flash of lightning. A clap of thunder. Santa’s flying caravan twists and turns through the whipping wind and plummets to Earth. And his only reindeer, Twinklestar, escapes into the night.


The Mysterious Caravan

Near his home, on a street called Misty Close, Ben and his schoolmates spot a broken down caravan. Could it belong to gypsies or a traveling circus? The school bully, Dean, dares Ben to knock on the door. When the door swings open, Ben comes face to face, not with a gypsy or a clown, but a normal looking man. But what he sees inside the man’s coat pocket is anything but normal—a miniature man with a red cap.


The Christmas Creatures

That afternoon, Ben returns to the caravan. The man, who introduces himself as Niklas Goodfellow, invites him in for hot chocolate. And Ben can hardly believe his eyes—he sees two plump angels and a gang of tiny, ill-mannered Christmas elves. And together, they tell Ben about the terrible Christmas catastrophe.


Goblynch and His Nutcrackers

The evil Goblynch has taken over the North Pole. Obsessed with money, Goblynch drove the elves out of work and convinced hundreds of Santa’s to ignore children’s wish lists. But seven of the Santa’s, including Niklas Goodfellow, tried to escape. Goblynch sent his Nutcrackers to capture the other six and turn them into chocolate Santa’s. Now Niklas is the only real Santa Claus left. And it’s only a matter of time before the Nutcrackers arrive on his doorstep. Can Ben find Niklas’s reindeer and help him escape before it’s too late?


The Bottom Line

This book has everything to put you in the Christmas spirit: perfect presents, a white Christmas and of course the jolly guy himself (who’s a lot younger and thinner than you’d think). When Santa Fell to Earth is one of the best kids Christmas novels around.

    Since it’s been raining so much lately, I’ve been staying home most nights. It’s a drag for me, but I guess the neighbors are glad that their kids have stopped disappearing.
