J.R.R.Tolkien’s classic letters and paintings ‘from Father Christmas’ to his children.

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 strange spidery handwriting and a beautiful coloured drawing or some sketches.

The letters were from Father Christmas.

They told wonderful tales of life at the North Pole: how all the reindeer got loose and scattered presents all over the place; how the accident-prone 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!

No reader, young or old, can fail to be charmed by the inventiveness and ‘authenticity’ of Tolkien’s Father Christmas Letters, and this special miniature hardback edition contains a selection of the most exciting stories and illustrations.
