Halloween is a holiday celebrated each year on October 31st. On this fateful day, when Halloween was being celebrated with its scary and creepy atmosphere, somebody shouted "Merry Christmas, ho-ho-ho," Merry Christmas at this time? Who could it be? Find out in Santa’s Slip Up, written by Raven Howell with beautiful illustrations by Savannah Horton. Santa’s Slip Up is a children’s book that displays the suspense associated with Halloween and the mystery created to get to the root of an unusual occurrence. It also shows the happy spirit associated with the season. The story is written in a poem-like form with literary devices like rhyme, onomatopoeia, alliteration, imagery, and rhetorical questions embedded in the storytelling. The illustrations are created to explain every line and show the reader a pictorial representation of events.
The colorful illustrations in Santa Slip Up perfectly represent the story, depicting the necessary emotions that the author aims to evoke in the young reader. I loved the use of suspense and mystery evident in the story and the genius ability of Raven Howell to create a joyful and hearty atmosphere at the end. Another thing I appreciated in Santa’s Slip Up is the language used. Apart from the fact that the language is simple and easy to learn, it provides a great source of learning for children by helping to improve their vocabulary. It shows us the light-hearted moments that can come with Halloween, as distinct from the fearful notions associated with the season. Kudos to Raven Howell for this adorable story.
