Back to Christmas by Dennis Canfield

This family has been on Santa's naughty list for two years in a row.  If it happens a third time, they stay there permanently.  The head elf puts them on the naughty list again, but Santa asks him to tell them the three requirements to get off the list and asks him to help them.  He warns the girl but forgets the steps.

Well-Spoken Books and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can grab a copy now.

Santa sends the elf to the South Pole to work with his brother, Reverse Santa, to make the family get along better.

Can you imagine going along in an old pickup towed by penguins?  That's Reverse Sannta's mode of transportation.  The first thing he does is kill their phones, their TV, radios and any other electric equipment that lets them ignore their family.  They actually put up the Christmas tree because there's nothing else to do. It takes a few more steps to get the family back on track but Reverse Santa and the elf are up to it.

This is a humorous read that is silly but fun to read.  You could read it aloud to your family this Christmas season.
