Nicki Noel and the Curious Christmas Truck

Nicki Noel and the Curious Christmas Truck - L.M. Williams ***** Crystal's 5 Star Review *****
Let me just start out by saying that this books intended audience is 8-12 years old, but I absolutely enjoyed this charming Christmas tale.
Nicki has never seen the way the town would come to life when the giant Christmas tree was in the town square every year. For some reason, it hasn’t been there for the past eight years and you can see the difference in the townspeople because of it. The magic of Christmas has all but disappeared from town, but not from Nicki Noel. She absolutely loves Christmas. It’s one of her favorite things, besides trucks. I’m not talking pickup trucks either. She loves eighteen wheelers and in her mind is destined to drive them when she gets older.
Then one night, desperate for a babysitter, her mom calls some old friends to see if they could help out. They do and the adventure begins. Their next door neighbor has an eighteen wheeler in his front yard and even though she has been told not to go over, she does. What happens next is something that would even put the Grinch in the holiday spirit.
This is such a fun book! I absolutely loved it and so did my eight year old daughter. The writing is good and the book moves along at a great pace. I believe it’s absolutely perfect for someone in the 8 to 10 age range, but can be enjoyed by everyone, maybe even Oscar the Grouch. Great job LM Williams!!
