The last promotional post for BIG E and the SANTA MAN was tongue-in-cheek, pretending that famous politicians have read the book.
But some very real people with very real credibility in the Elvis community have read it. Here’s what they have to say.

Because Big E and the Santa Man is “A Rock & Roll Christmas Fantasy,” anything that can be imagined can happen … and does.
In the first chapter of this delightful little story, Elvis arrives at the North Pole to visit Santa and Mama Claus. He tells them to call him Big E. Ultimately, he and Santa are on a mission to see that all the presents get delivered on Christmas Eve, but a nasty villain, and his dreaded transporter beam, is out to sabotage the journey.
Of course both sides have their soldiers, good elves and bad, along with some very cool science fiction and futuristic gizmos. You’ll have to read the book to know how the battle ends, and more importantly, whether or not the presents get delivered.
I give Big E and the Santa Man a big “E” for “Entertaining.”

Big E and the Santa Man is a fantastic world that Phil Arnold has created. Taking two magical characters and bringing them together works in this very imaginative story. Elvis always loved Christmas and I am sure he would have enjoyed this tale.

Phil Arnold has written a witty and insightful Christmas fantasy… a good read you will enjoy this Christmas and each one to come.
In chapter after chapter of BIG E and the SANTA MAN, the characters, the dialog, and the surroundings become more vivid. The exchanges involving “Big E” convey Elvis’ mannerisms, his good heart, and his vocal Inflections, and in doing so breathe life into the pages.
I have often said that part of Elvis’ genius was his heart. His charitable interests and giving. His true caring for others. These qualities far too often are overlooked.
Thank you Phil Arnold for giving of your time and passion concerning Elvis Presley. And for writing this enjoyable book that is light hearted but carries a strong message. Take care and may God bless you always.
So, there it is…. Positive reviews of BIG E and the SANTA MAN from four people of stature in Elvis World. If you had been skeptical before that the book could be any good, this should give you confidence that it is. You will love the book as much as these people.
And did you notice that all four reviews mentioned Christmas? This is a Rock and Roll Christmas fantasy. As I’ve said before, BIG E and the SANTA MAN is the:
