A sumptuous gift book originated from the beautiful letters and drawings Tolkien, in the guise of Father Christmas, sent his children over a twenty year period. The letters tell the story of life at the North Pole, the mischievous North Polar Bear, the helpful Ilbereth the elf, and the adventures they shared between the Christmases. As well as beautifully reproduced pictures, the book also features 10 envelopes containing 10 pull-out letters and pictures for children to read, hold and enjoy. The pull-outs are facsimile extracts of the original letters, with simple 'translation' on the back of each to help those who have trouble deciphering Father Christmas's shaky handwriting.

It's absolutely wonderful to get a peek into the mind of Tolkien through the letters of "Father Christmas" to Tolkien's children! He is imaginative and loving, and a terrific artist, and comes up with the greatest stories! This is so worth the money I can't tell you. It's darling!
