The Father Christmas Letters by J.R.R. Tolkien

Children all across the world write letters to Santa every December. But how many kids get letters back? If you happen to be the children of beloved author J.R.R. Tolkien, you receive a letter every year from Father Christmas himself.

Father Christmas writes to the Tolkien children throughout the 1920's and 30's, telling them tales of the bumbling North Polar Bear, the logistics of traveling all around the world in just one night, and the ever present threat of goblin attack. Each letter is accompanied by wonderful illustrations of the adventures (and sometimes misadventures) of Father Christmas and his helpers.

The Father Christmas Letters is a must-read for Tolkien lovers and anyone else who loves a good adventure!
