Santa Jaws

Updated: Jun 11, 2023

Shelley the shark is eager to spread some Christmas cheer under the ocean, but will anyone trust a Santa with such sharp and pointy teeth?

This Christmas story had my children giggling from beginning to end. It's a fun concept that touches on important topics of inclusion and trust in a humorous way. 

Sid the squid's joy at the prospect of meeting Santa will resonate with young readers. And, despite its watery setting, this book feel very festive throughout. We particularly liked the bright, adorable illustrations which included lots of Christmas details 

The rhyme scheme makes it fun to read aloud and my children loved when Shelley wished the ocean inhabitants a 'Merry Fishmas'! 

Santa Jaws will make a fun addition to any Christmas story collection. 

Santa Jaws is written by Mark Sperring and illustrated by Sophie Corrigan

Thank you Bloomsbury for sending me an advanced digital copy for review via NetGalley.
