From the #1 New York Times bestseller

At the Battle School, there is only one course of study: the strategy and tactics of war. Humanity is fighting an alien race, and we fight as one. Students are drawn from all nations, all races, all religions, taken from their families as children. There is no room for cultural differences, no room for religious observances, and there is certainly no room for Santa Claus.

But the young warriors disagree. When Dink Meeker leaves a Sinterklaaus Day gift in another Dutch student's shoe, that quiet act of rebellion becomes the first shot in a war of wills that the staff of the Battle School never bargained for.

Orson Scott Card's novel Ender's Game is the basis of the hit movie of the same name.

    " More on the short story side of things. But all the little stories came together as one. The message hit close to home. "

    " Anything about Ender is dynamite in my book, and this tiny little book is sweet and touching, filled with arrogant genius children, silly poems, and it's about Christmas. Which makes for a pretty enjoyable read, in my opinion. "

    " I've been enjoying the latest stories coming out of the "Enderverse" via Card's InterGalactic Medicine Show, but was surprised to see this one in hard cover at my library - so I had to pisk it up. A quick read, but it threw me immediately back into my Ender trance, reminding me of how much I loved these characters and story. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Daniel P | 1/27/2014

    " This book should never have been made. It is the worst propagandist piece of ----- I have ever read. Card should be ashamed. He greatly ruined the Ender universe with this book. ALL ENDER AND CARD FANS STAY AWAY!!! Card uses this book to spout his religion.... his writing style here is unrecognizable and the storyline is freaking pathetic. "
