Description (from Goodreads):
March of the Toymakers follows the journey of Santa’s chief elf, Nissa, on his quest to save Christmas. Santa barely has enough elves to make enough toys for all the children of the world, so he sends Nissa on a mission to find the Fair Feather Maid, who will help them recruit an army of elves to become toymakers. However, there are many challenges along the way, from solving riddles and breaking pixie spells to fighting off ogres, trolls, and goblins, all of whom wish to prevent the army of toymakers from making it back to Santa’s Village in time. If they do not make it back by Midsummer’s Eve, they will not have enough time to make all the toys that bring Christmas joys.
The March of the Toymakers is an imaginative book full of adventure and mythical creatures including elves, fairies, trolls, ogres and goblins.
Even though Santa is at the beginning and end of this story, and his chief elf, Nissan, is the main character, this is more of an adventure than a Christmas story. Nissan is on a quest to get more toymakers for Santa or there won’t be enough toys for Christmas.
The March of the Toymakers is nonstop action and a fun read for both children and adults. It is especially a good book for those who enjoy quests. Available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
