Storytelling World Award 2014 winner

Meet a beastly boy with a dastardly plan that could ruin Christmas!
Bradley Bartleby is bad. Very bad. To avoid Bradley's wrath, his wealthy parents buy him whatever he wants. All the adults in Bradley's life are running scared - except for Santa Claus, who refuses to give him anything but socks.
But Bradley vows to get what he deserves. If Santa won't give him the gifts he wants, Bradley will just have to steal them.
It takes Bradley a full year to execute his plan. In the end, he transforms his house into a trap so fearsome even his parents refuse to enter it. With dynamite, trapdoors, guillotines, and tigers in his path, Santa doesn't stand a chance. Or does he?

Next-level supervillainy is featured here as naughty kid Bradley Bartleby (who only ever gets socks from Santa) sets his entire house up with elaborate traps to capture Santa Claus and steal all the toys. But... things may not go according to plan.

Not a typical Christmas picture book. You'll love the lengths the naughtiest kid ever goes to finally trap Santa and get something other than socks. Perfect for your inner supervillain.

We absolutely loved the story! A first-grader and two toddlers - all enjoyed it! We shall definitely borrow it again for our Christmas book-a-day advent calendar.
