As November disappears into the rear view mirror, we look ahead to Christmas and find books on this week’s list to put under the tree or to distract prying eyes. Archie Comics releases the next volume in the Sonic The Hedgehog Archives, and Kodansha continues its release of the manga adaptation of the tween adventure series Deltora Quest. Eva Ink releases a book for the Santa-curious, Santa Confidential, that asks the hard questions such as “How does Santa get into a house with a chimney?” along with 364 other questions, one for each day of the year. It a great book for keeping snoopy elves away from the tree.
