J.R.R. Tolkien wrote his children letters from Father Christmas every year for about 20 years. Each letter was addressed to the children, written in beautiful inks and calligraphy, and often a painted picture of the North Pole’s year of events came along with it. The letters detailed the adventures of Father Christmas and his friend the North Polar Bear as they fought troublesome goblins, had great parties, and recovered Christmas preparations from the Polar Bear’s antics. This collection of letters only reinforced my desires to be a Tolkien.
I wish I could have reviewed this before Christmas as it would make an amazing gift for Tolkien fans (or anyone who just likes Christmas), but I actually received it as a Christmas gift myself! I guess you’ll have a year to gift it to someone! But yes, it was a great read. It was so much fun and so whimsical. Reading this turned my pretty terrible Christmas into a good one. I really can’t recommend this enough.
