Things on a Tree
In Things On A Tree by D. L. Finn, we are introduced to a young girl named Aimee. Aimee loved Christmas, but this year was different. Just last year, Aimee’s dad passed away on Christmas Eve. Aimee was also very sick this Christmas, and seeing her mom and siblings play in the snow outside and having fun made Aimee furious. How could they enjoy Christmas while all she could think about was her dead father? Aimee decided to stay on the couch and try to sleep. Aimee had a certain feeling she couldn’t understand. After going into the kitchen and going back to the couch in the middle of the night, Aimee saw something strange on her Christmas tree. Next thing she knew, Aimee’s Christmas ornament was moving! And there was Santa, standing in her living room before her very eyes! Aimee was dumbfounded and soon learned some very intriguing news. Santa told Aimee she was the new caretaker of the forest and they could go back in time to stop her dad’s death from ever happening. Before Aimee could wrap her brain around what she just heard, it was time to leave. Santa introduced Aimee to an elf named Hope, who took Aimee on some very wild adventures to try and escape the evil elves trying to kill her and Aimee’s grandmother. Aimee traveled to the North Pole and even New York, where she was turned into a dog! Aimee’s adventure only gets better as the book goes on.
This book was very fun and exciting and had lots of twists and turns I didn’t expect, which made the book even better. The story was unique in the sense that there was a dark side to the story, compared to all the other Christmas stories. I enjoyed reading this book, but I would have like more detailed illustrations. All in all, this book was very fun, and I enjoyed reading it.
