I was fortunate to find this book on the Express Reads shelf at the library just a few days before Christmas. It introduces all the relevant Saint Nicholas beliefs in a plausible way. The author sensitively handles tough issues such as the deaths of the boy's parents.

Awesome book! Great read aloud for the whole family. If you are looking for a wonderful Christmas book and how St. Nick became Father Christmas, look no further. It truly demonstrated the meaning of Christmas without the commercial bits with a magical journey that's both charming and whimsical. It is dark to start, but what quest isn't? It is sure to be a classic!
