Every December an envelope bearing a stamp from the North Pole would arrive for J.R.R. Tolkien's children. Inside would be a letter in a strange, spidery handwriting and a beautiful colored drawing or painting. The letters were from Father Christmas. They told wonderful tales of life at the North Pole: how the reindeer got loose and scattered presents all over the place; how the accident-prone North Polar Bear climbed the North Pole and fell through the roof of Father Christmas's house into the dining room; how he broke the Moon into four pieces and made the Man in it fall into the back garden; how there were wars with the troublesome horde of goblins who lived in the caves beneath the house, and many more. No reader, young or old, can fail to be charmed by Tolkien's inventiveness in this classic holiday treat.

Lovely little book compiled of letters from Santa that Tolkien wrote to his children every year. I loved the illustrations that were included. This is a great book to pick up and read for a few minutes every day during the Christmas season.

These letters are amazing. They are full of fun, humour and magic. The drawings are wonderful as well. I can imagine the excitement of children as they found these personal letters from Father Christmas. What a wonderful tradition.
