The Adventures of Santa Claus and the Magic Truck Dust by Emer Conlon
Series: Vroom-town #5
Release Date: 28th September 2019
Publisher: Essential Marketing Limited
Genres: Children's Fiction - ages-7 years

This is the fifth book in the Vroom-Town series. In this story, Santa needs help to deliver the presents on Christmas Eve - as his sleigh is broken! His Vroom-Town friends come to the rescue BUT BullyDozer and Terrible Terry have other ideas! Will the children get their presents in time for Christmas..? You will have to read the book to find out. The Vroom-Town books make ideal Christmas gifts or stocking fillers for girls and boys aged 2-7 years! 

This book brings the funsize reader on an enchanting journey that will captivate little minds! This, coupled with the fact that as a Vroom-Town book it deals with social issues, such as bullying and the importance of friendship and kindness, means it is an excellent purchase for all of Santa's friends! With the digital devices and screentime that children have, a book is a terrific gift that can be opened again and again and again!

What a fabulous little book this is and just perfect for getting your little ones excited about Christmas time. I read this to my goddaughter last week and unfortunately made her hyper about Christmas but hey ho that's what cool aunts are allowed to do. I'm a little excited about it myself now! At aged 4 years old she totally loved this book and we had quite a bit of discussion about the story, particularly about how Santa's friends the trucks helped him out and how some of the characters were 'a bit mean'.

This is a great story to read little ones and although initially when I first received the book I thought it was quite thick for a children's book, but its actually a very readable story and there are only little chunks of text on the pages which make it readable for little ones and has the most wonderful illustrations. I loved some of the expressions on the trucks and this really brought them to life. A super book that will make a brilliant Christmas present this year and I feel suitable for both boys and girls. The book carries important messages about bullying, being mean and nasty and the joys of friendship and kindness. All very important for young, inquisitive minds. Highly recommended.

There is also an interactive website with puzzles, jigsaws and games. Check it out here www.Vroom-Town.ie

 I became interested in writing children's books probably later than most. Like everything in life, it's about timing and when my professional career and my imagination collided, the wonderful world of Vroom-Town was created. I started on this journey six years ago and now, after a lot of speed-bumps, there are five books oublished so far in the Vroom-Town series! - I have another 9 books written and titles for a further 58 - so hopefully this is the start of something wonderful for children to enjoy for many years to come.

My background is Marketing and I have more than twenty years marketing experience - eighteen years of which has been, and still is, as Marketing Manager of McElvaney Motors, Ireland - a Scania Truck Dealer - hence the inspiration for books about trucks!
