Seasons Readings: When Santa Fell to Earth

I've had this book, When Santa Fell to Earth by Cornelia Funke for a year.  I had a couple of students borrow it last year before I could read it and book talk it, and they both really enjoyed it. 
 
Here is the summary from Goodreads:
What would happen if Santa fell to Earth? Christmas through the eyes of Cornelia Funke: quirky, funny, ultimately heartwarming, and packaged in a collectible format. A new holiday classic!

Scared by a storm, Twinklestar, the least reliable reindeer, bolts--causing Santa and his sleigh to crash-land. And though Santa has dropped into a friendly neighborhood, he's not safe: Jeremiah Goblynch, the ruthless new leader of the Council of Yuleland, is determind to put an end to children's wishes and turn the holiday season into his own personal moneymaking scheme. As the last REAL St. Nick around, only Santa stands between Goblynch and his grinchlike plan. With the help and hope of kids Charlotte and Ben, Santa must face Goblynch and his Nutcracker goons to save Christmas!

I thought this book was really cute.  I'll admit, I scheduled this one for after surgery because I thought I'd have so much time to read a chapter book, but it turns out, I didn't really feel like doing much of anything (much less walking back to the spare room to get it when the couch was oh-so-comfortable).
