Full Text Reviews:

School Library Journal - 10/01/2015 K-Gr 3—There is a market for spoofs of Clement Moore's poem, with pirate and cowboy versions only two of the many humorous takes on the classic. This version is as creaky as the armor of the "three knights ding-a-ling" who attempt to repel the invading Santa Claus and his eight dragons. The Adobe Photoshop cartoon illustrations have dialogue bubbles and weak jokes that don't really go anywhere. VERDICT An additional purchase only.—Anne Connor, Los Angeles Public Library - Copyright 2015 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
