Today I share my review for the short story Him with the Beard by Pernille Meldgaard Pederson. This Blitz comes at the perfect time of year as we are all thinking about Christmas and Santa. Which begs the question: Do YOU remember that moment you stopped believing in Santa Claus?
There is also an international giveaway going on!
Do you remember that moment you stopped believing in Santa Claus?
When nine-year-old Mille suddenly no longer believes in Santa Claus, it turns the house upside down.
Her mother, Stella, is in a pickle as the hunt to find Santa Claus unearths some family secrets.
Christmas is at risk!
And there’s only one person who can save it.

This is a short story with a family coping with nine year old Mille not believing in Santa anymore, which is what every parent dreads. One parent is having a harder time dealing with it than the other. Then there is a twist: which throws everything for a loop. The twist did not personally work for me, but it is all part of the story.
This is a story that shows the magic that is Santa: Is he real or not? What does Santa mean to you? This story can show the magic that the Christmas season has!
About the Author:
Pernille was born in 1988 and loves that she was born in the decade with the tallest hair, the most colourful clothes, and the best music.
Her imagination never stands still, and it’s often expressed in words and pictures.
She wrote her first story when she was six years old. It was about the cat she unfortunately never got but wished for more than anything.
She loves autumn and Christmas and believes in elves.
From day to day she is a knight in training, an animator, and a secret agent – she has saved the world a few times by now.
She’s also a professional daydreamer.
She thinks the recipe for a good book is the same as the one for having a good life – a sense of kinship, humour, love, and that one thing that gives you a daily smile.
Vestercity is a fictional city based on her upbringing near the city of Herning in Denmark.
