Review + BlogTour: PS: Who Stole Santa's Mail?

KBR is delighted to welcome author and friend Dimity Powell with her very first publication! PS: Who Stole Santa's Mail - out just in time for Christmas. Dimity is on virtual tour with her fabulous new junior fiction book, and can be followed to several amazing websites. See the blog tour link at the end of this review!

Who stole Santa's mail? Why are the post boxes disappearing?

Mysterious things are  happening in the town of Bramblebury and Sam Doolan is mighty suspicious. Along with BFF Tobii (who happens to love jellybeans, even Sam's favourite black ones), Sam is on a mission to sort things out. He has good reason, too - he really needs to get his Christmas wishlist through to Santa. How else is he going to get the bike he's always wanted?


Mr Peacock, the postmaster, is no help. Only the town gossip, Mrs Baird, is even the least bit interested. If Sam doesn't sort something soon, Christmas could be ruined!

An evil elf, a stolen little sister, the threat of reindeer poisoning and a splash of Christmas magic make for a charming and highly imaginative story, with well-rounded characters and plenty of action that will easily amuse children - and most importantly, keep them reading.

A natural storyteller with a penchant for great dialogue and kid-centered humour, Powell has created a festive romp that will ignite the flame on your Christmas pudding.
