Amazon summary:

It was Christmas Eve and the dino-tots were tucked up in bed dreaming of Christmas magic . . . But where were the jolly jingle bells? The hearty "Ho! Ho! Ho!"? And who was this green scaly creature stomping through the snow? YIKES, It's Santa-CLAWS and he's causing chaos. Can ANYONE stop him and save the day? 

Review: 

Yikes, Santa-Claws! marks the beginning of my 2014 Christmas reading, and what a good way to begin! Pamela Butchart and Sam Lloyd have once again teamed up to tell another story about everyone's favourite dinosaurs, and this time Santa-Claws is the hero of the hour.

Santa-Claws is a bit mischievous and more than a bit naughty, imitating the real Santa Claus on Christmas Eve so he can eat food and open people's presents. He causes a lot of chaos on his little monstrous rampage, and eventually has to help put everything to rights again when the real Santa Claus intervenes!

This book will be so much fun for any little dinos this Christmas and is definitely one to add to any festive reading lists. Santa-Claws looks cute in his Santa hat and has been expertly illustrated by Sam Lloyd, while Pamela Butchart once again crafts a rhyming story that will keep any tiny readers on their toes.

Yikes, Santa-Claws! has already got me in the Christmas spirit, and I'll certainly be making sure there are no dinosaurs roaming around my kitchen on Christmas Eve. These little fellas shouldn't be allowed to slip down people's chimneys for fear of getting in trouble with the real Santa. Let Santa-Claws be a lesson to them all for next year!
