Educational Adventures For Children By Wendy Nystrom

Join James, Syvok, thirteen Yule Lads and, of course, Matthias as they cause a ruckus, create laughs, and create a Yuletide that you and James will always remember.

Tomfoolery and 13 Yule Lads of Iceland (James and Syvok)

Thirteen Santas! How neat! thinks James and Syvok as they set off on their third adventure. Little did he know the mischief these Yule Lads were capable of getting them all into

What could be more exciting than a thrilling trip to the intriguing country of Iceland, with thirteen Icelandic Santas! The story starts with James reading a book about Iceland, and then his friends, Matthias and Syvok, and the cute glittering Dragonets visit his room. Soon afterward, they start their exciting adventures.

It is cold and dark, but the darkness does not scare the friends from flying north to frigid Iceland, which has a long list of Christmas traditions. From the first chapter, the author takes readers on a gripping ride. Readers quickly learn about the thirteen brothers (Santas) and what part they play in Christmas celebrations.

Just wait until they meet the Spooky Old Hag and her dragons, which will give readers goose bumps and chills! Do you really want to know what they eat for dinner? Well, I will keep this a secret for a while ...

Wendy Nystrom has created a fine story, which reminds me of old Christmas tales, where anything can happen. The Christmas Cat is interesting, and the dragons are just waiting for our heroes to make a wrong step. Luckily for the little adventurers, there were good Santas to protect them from the evil Old Hag.

Readers will love this book because, through the amusing adventures, the author introduces them to the beautiful country of Iceland, and they can easily learn about its traditions and culture. If your children like to read old stories with a modern twist, this book is definitely a great read.

Wendy began writing children stories in 2005 while living on the wonderfully imagination filled island of Iceland. Her writing paradise is sitting around a campfire deep in the mountains with a huge moon above with the mountain outlined all around while a story teller weaves a tale of adventure with a splash of fun as a pebble skips across the water.

Wendy's first children's book is James Saves the Moon.

James Saves the Moon: A young precocious boy finds himself on a true adventure in the beautiful mountains of Iceland when he climbs out his window one night in an effort to touch the moon. He starts out on a mission that ends up so much more. He meets a magical friend, named Syvok, who shows him the way and introduces him to trouble and keeps him safe all at the same time. He also meets Matthias, a majestic blue dragon who flies them anywhere they need to go. With the help of his new friends James not only gets to touch the moon, but ends up having to save it. James is returned home with a souvenir magic, incredible memories, and promises of more adventures with his new friends.

Wendy's third children's book is

What do you get? A lot of fun and Tomfoolery I'll bet! The Thirteen Yule Lads of Iceland are much different than the Santa Claus we know. They are mischievous, troublesome, funny, and full of curiosity. Much like James! When James visits them in their home with Syvok, he almost gets eaten by their mother and is taunted by the Christmas Cat. They know right where they are going to come when they visit town during the 13 days of Christmas. James finds out that the Yule Lads make the noisiest ever houseguests when they come to stay. They clang pots, slam doors, and even bring their own lamb. However, amidst all the ruckus they create the most joy and fun for the holidays.
