Children have to deal with so much more and grow up so much faster than they used to. The book offers an escape and a chance to just be children for a little longer.
Denver (PRWEB) December 12, 2012
What if Grandma didn’t get run over by a reindeer?
In ‘Granny’s Christmas Blunder’, a new children’s book by Scott Murray, a baseball bat-wielding grandma takes Santa down.
A poetic holiday adventure, ‘Granny’s Christmas Blunder’ is the story of a grandmother who, thinking he is a thief, hits Santa Claus over the head with a baseball bat, knocking him out cold. To fix the situation, Granny jumps into Santa’s sleigh and takes off to deliver the remaining Christmas presents and save the holiday.
Drawing inspiration from his five children, Murray hopes that the book offers a fun, light-hearted break from the issues children face today.
“Children have to deal with so much more and grow up so much faster than they used to,” says Murray. “The book offers an escape and a chance to just be children for a little longer.”
While ‘Granny’s Christmas Blunder’ is meant to be light-hearted, it is not without a message.
“I want to convey that everyone makes mistakes,” says Murray. “Obviously, Granny made a pretty big mistake here but she did what she needed to do to fix it.”
Murray wants readers to understand that mistakes happen but if we take responsibility for them, there is always the opportunity to make things right.
