Independent Book Reviews: Billy Christmas by Mark A. Pritchard

January 4, 2020

A Quick Review for Busy Parents, by a Busy Parent.

Order Here:


Synopsis: A young adult named Billy Christmas discovers a way to bring his father home after he vanished one year ago. With a magical bent and clear descriptions, this book is a wonderful read for young and old alike. Despite the name, it can be read any time of the year and would be a great book to read with your kids, probably starting around age eight.


Genre: Literary Fiction


Hook: A Missing Father and a Magical Quest

Fun Fact: I’m going to read this book with my son in the new year. He is very anxious but also loves adventure, and this is perfect for him. It sits in a really sweet spot.


Full Disclosure: I received this book to review from Alan Squire Publishing, but everything in this review is my own opinion. 


Time of Year to Read: Winter and Christmas of course, but really, any time of year would be great, with a partial preference for colder months.


Would I Recommend This to Other Busy Parents: Yes, and it’s also a great book to read with your kids.


Similar Reads: The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis, a PG version of The Magicians by Lev Grossman and the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling.
