on April 22, 2013 :
This is a belated review. The author gave this book to me as a gift because I had enjoyed all her previous books in the series.
If you've read any of the five previous books in the Kiwi Series (Kiwi in Cat City, Kiwi and the Missing Magic, Kiwi and the Living Nightmare, Kiwi and the Serpent of the Isle and Kiwi and the Realm of Ra) then you know wherever Amy and James' little black cat appears, magical things will follow.
This is a story full of holiday magic, fun and adventure, where a new star on top of Amy and James' Christmas tree turns out to be a real star, stolen from Father Christmas. The chase is on to rescue the star's friend, a Christmas Fairy, and make sure Father Christmas can find them Christmas Eve to take them home. The only problem is the witch who lives in the holiday fun house; she chases them all the way back to Cat City - where there is no Christmas Eve! Will Kiwi, Ames and Jimster get their new friends back home in time? Will the catizens of Cat City discover Christmas? It's a quick story suitable for most ages and a great addition to every child's holiday reading list.
