Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dean Koontz kicks the holiday season into high gear with a wildly inventive and wickedly funny sequel to his perennial Christmas bestseller Santa's Twin.

The Claus family's bad seed, Bob, is back and dishing out a second helping of holiday havoc and headaches for his twin brother, Santa. Exactly a year has passed since Bob kidnapped Santa and visited Charlotte and Emily in his stead, bearing gifts of mud pies, cat poop, and broccoli. After his defeat at the hands of the two brave sisters, Bob has worked hard to redeem himself in Santa's eyes. Unfortunately Bob's spare time has been spent secretly building a robot Santa Claus. Super Santa One was designed to help Santa halve his delivery time, but Bob has left a screw loose on his creation (several screws, actually), and this Christmas Eve, a badly malfunctioning robot Santa Claus is coming to town.

Review:

"[T]here are enough laughs, wordplay, and clever twists to hold the interest of most kids....The illustrations are slick, smooth, and rather stiff, which works well with the robotic characters but not so well with the real ones..." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

Bob is back in this rip-snorting sequel to Santa's Twin. It's been exactly one year since Bob kidnapped Santa. After his defeat by two brave sisters, Bob has tried to redeem himself with Santa. But the Claus family's bad seed has secretly built a robot Santa that soon wreaks havoc on Christmas. Full color.

Synopsis:

Two sisters save Christmas from Santa's evil twin brother who delivers worms, spiders, spinach, and Brussels sprouts candy.
