December 22, pm Where oh where do I begin to start a review of what has now become my favorite holiday special of all time? Larfleeze and his trusty companion awaken at around am in anticipation of spending the day unwrapping all the gifts on his list that Santa surely must have left under the tree.
Enraged the Orange Lantern responds to seeing Santa Claus on television by flying to the site of the live telecast on an orange sleigh powered by several orange reindeer. Santa is taken hostage and when his beard flies off Larfleeze realizes that the man is but a decoy for the real Santa. The real Santa walks into a nearby store and Larfleeze charges off in hot pursuit. Larfleeze Cookies — a new holiday tradition! The scene he discovers pushes Larfleeze over the edge. A young boy tells Larfleeze that he needs to head north to find Santa where he lives, and off the Orange Lantern goes to the North Pole.

I know I kind of felt like a kid again after finishing the book — a valuable gift in itself. What Do I Think? Ten out of ten lanterns. Share this:.
