Publisher's Summary

Peace on Earth, Goodwill to Men…and Gingerbread Men?!
After his harsh beginnings as a rough-and-tumble orphan on the streets of London, Jake Everton takes his rightful place as the long-lost heir of an aristocratic family with magical powers - his personal quest, to follow in his slain parents' footsteps as a Lightrider in the age-old battle of good versus evil. In the fantastical nooks and crannies of the Victorian Age, Jake and his friends (including his pet Gryphon) find no shortage of adventure - righting magic-related wrongs, solving supernatural mysteries, and exploring wondrous new worlds. Now it's Jake's first Christmas with his eccentric magical relatives, but trouble never takes a holiday.…
Santa's Horrid Little Helper
Humbug hates being a Christmas elf. Instead of making toys, he'd rather make mischief. Angling for a new job in Halloween Town, he sets out to prove he's frightful enough for the task by ruining Christmas for as many people as possible - until Jake and his friends capture him. The kids set out on a rip-roaring adventure to the North Pole to hand the troublemaker over to Santa. But the way is fraught with danger, leaving them to wonder if they'll make it back in time for Christmas…or if they'll even make it back alive!

A New Christmas Classic

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I am so happy to have reviewed this book as my first Audible book As a big fan of books on CD I was excited. This is a wonderful addition to the series and interesting that it can be read without reading any of the others. The voices are so clever and you can "see" the characters. The humor and storyline are what makes you listen over and over. My favorite thing was that I listened with my 14 year old granddaughter who would Rush home from school and "listen ahead". Then she would call me and tell me to hurry home for the next Installment.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Of course Red and Gladwin are my favorites but Santa was a great new character. The voice of Santa makes you look over your shoulder to see if he is I. The room with you.


Which scene was your favorite?

I actually loved the yeti scene on the way to the north pole when the sleigh "crew" were all arguing and Red got mad at them. Then the yeti entered the scene. ..


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The humor in the whole series always makes me laugh. I love the life lessons the books are teaching.


Any additional comments?

We will listen to this over and over just to see what we might have missed. I plan to go back and buy the books I have read on Audible books. I love to listen and read along. My granddaughter has grown to love doing this too. Thanks for the opportunity to review this and a big thank you for the introduction to Audible books.
