CAPE COD, Mass. − Fans of the beloved Brayden series are in for a holiday treat any time of year as Brayden once again slips on his magical green glasses and takes a journey full of magic and wonder. This time, Brayden will transport into one of the most glorious places on earth—the North Pole.
In Brayden’s Magical North Pole Christmas, Brayden goes on a journey to the North Pole and gets to meet some of the most famous and beloved characters in history: Santa and Mrs. Claus. Brayden also makes a new friend, Addison, and the two have a wonderful time working and playing in Santa's workshop. Brayden has an unusual request for this Christmas of Santa Claus, and Jolly Ole Saint Nick may have a hard time delivering Brayden’s special request in time for the holiday.
The children’s series featuring Brayden has won many awards, so parents and grandparents will enjoy these books with their children. The first three books in the series: Brayden’s Magical Jungle, Brayden’s Magical Carousel Horse, and Brayden’s Magical Forest, all won honorable mention in the 2018 Purple Dragonfly Award Contest, which is awarded for fiction books for children age two to five–years. The fourth book in the series, Brayden's Magical Pirate Ship Adventure, won second place for the 2020 Purple Dragonfly Award. The series, which is appropriate for children up to seven years old, has won not only awards but also the hearts of readers worldwide.
“Brayden will be teamed up with more of his cousins, so his magical journey possibilities are endless,” explained Author Anita Ann Caruso.
Anita Caruso’s wonderful storytelling is further accentuated by the illustrations of Randy Jennings, who is both an author in his own right and a well-known artist. Children aged three to seven years old and their families will love the newest edition of the Brayden series: Brayden’s Magical North Pole Christmas. Families can read the book series together and then work to imagine their own Brayden stories. An inventive nana might drum up a magnificent pair of green glasses for a bit of fun play-acting. Brayden’s Magical North Pole Christmas will lead to hours of fun and entertainment.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Anita Ann Caruso, the author of the Brayden series, began telling stories to entertain her cousins when she was only 10 years old. Although she had an amazing career as an interior designer for over 40 years, Caruso did not intend to retire completely as she wanted to focus on her writing and family. Caruso wrote about an imaginative little six-year-old boy with magical green glasses who loves to play with all his cousins—drawing aspects of his character from her great grandson as well as the rest of her family which includes 32 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren. She loves being a nana and, now, being the best great-nana ever.
