Juvenile fiction book receives “Distinguished Favorite” 2017 recognition.
San Diego – The juvenile fiction book by popular Christian author Bob Siegel –The Dangerous Christmas Ornament– is not only a delight to children and adults, but to industry experts on the Independent Press Awards selection committee as well. The whimsical story that combines non-stop adventure with morality has just earned the title “Distinguished Favorite” for 2017.
The Dangerous Christmas Ornament is a story of 12-year-old Mike Owen, who receives a magical gift from his aunt: a Christmas ornament that, to his amazement and delight, grants wishes. But, for every wish Mike makes, something bad happens to those around him. As Mike begins to weigh his own desires against their dangerous consequences, he learns a valuable lesson about choice and personal responsibility.
“The ‘Distinguished Favorite’ recognition is a celebrated honor that I’m proud to receive,” said Siegel. “With this designation, my hope is that The Dangerous Christmas Ornament will delight even more readers with its entertaining plot while spreading a powerful, thought-provoking message about selflessness and humility.”
The Dangerous Christmas Ornament can be purchased online through Amazon, Barnes and Noble and other retailers. For more information about Siegel, visit http://www.bobsiegel.net or connect with him on Facebook and Twitter.
