#BookReview: Sleighed by W J Scott @WendyJayneScott

Hi everyone. Today, I have a book review for you for a children’s book. This is a fun and quick read >>>


About the Book:


56398168. sy475 Tinsel is the newest apprentice in Santa’s Workshop, but this young elf lands himself in strife on his first day!
He’s sent to care for the reindeer and instead ends up on a magical adventure.
Will the Toy-Inspector allow him back into the Workshop?

A fun Christmas story for younger readers and those young at heart.


My Review:

It’s far too long since I read a children’s book, and this one is a fun, quick read with some wonderful illustrations throughout.

This story is about an elf’s first day on a new job. All too soon, he finds himself in a bit of a ticklish situation.

The take-away from this lovely little tale for me is that magic doesn’t discriminate! Always wash your hands! lols.

A line that I loved:

‘The Chief Toy-Inspector is spitting candy floss that Tinsel didn’t return to the assembly line last night.’

‘Spitting candy floss’ … oh, my. Such wonderful humour and expressions abound in this gentle, amusing children’s book.

Sleighed gets five fun stars from me.



NOTE ON RATINGS: I consider a 3-star rating a positive review. Picky about which books I give 5 stars to, I reserve this highest rating for the stories I find stunning and which moved me.

4 STARS: I WOULD PULL AN ALL-NIGHTER — Go read this book.
3 STARS: IT WAS GOOD! — An okay read. Didn’t love it. Didn’t hate it.
2 STARS: I MAY HAVE LIKED A FEW THINGS —Lacking in some areas: writing, characterisation, and/or problematic plot lines.
1 STAR: NOT MY CUP OF TEA —Lots of issues with this book.

I’d love to hear what you think of this review. Thanks for stopping by 🙂
