Helping Horace Helfin
Written by John Philip McCarthy

Rated: 3.9 on the KART Kids Book Scale Children (8 - 12) - Will receive a 4 Star Rating on our website

The winter holidays are over and Christmas may be the last thing on most readers' minds; but fans of the loveable dynamic duo, Horace Helfin and Sally Connors, are in for a special treat. Original creatures and cultures, fascinating foods and amenities, and unique friends and foes set the stage in John Philip McCarthy's action-packed third installment of this adventure series.

The North Pole is in shambles. An evil elf dictator has overthrown the democracy of the elfin society, Santa has taken refuge in the Human World, and robots...yes, robots have destroyed goodness and removed joy from the residents of the North Pole. With the former Christmas and Halloween escapades behind them, Horace and his team of unlikely heroes must now prepare for the ultimate battle. Using newly discovered supernatural abilities, Horace, Sally, and friends hone their talents and discover that true power comes from working together.

Combined with Paulette Bensignor's meticulous drawings and illustrated glossary, McCarthy's vivid details and thought provoking topics (such as the value of believing in your own gifts and talents, instead of yearning for those of another person and what may seem small to you may be the most powerful of all) provide a wonderful landscape for teachers and parents to develop discussion questions while older elementary and middle school students immerse themselves in this epic fantasy of friendship and self-discovery.

"With the Blessing of Santa," enjoy Helping Horace Helfin.
