Part of the round of this years' new seasonable classics.

I was so deeply delighted by this book.

I was sold the second I realized it was Tolkein writing to his ow children as Father Christmas every year as they were growing up. I was so deeply attached so quickly to the kind, compassionate, understanding voice of Father Christmas (as well as Polar Bear and our elf, both later on). I was poignant moved at each point where the letter's references which children were getting to old to write him, or to get stockings, and the one where his daughter had come into the world.

I'm so glad these were kept and that they were published. My heart was warmed all over by them. ( )

In true Tolkien form, this collection of annual Christmas letters to the Tolkien children starts off quite modestly with a few short notes from Father Christmas and the North Polar Bear but quickly expands to include goblins, elves, new languages and alphabets, and increasingly detailed lore. The original illustrations and handwritten letters that Tolkien created are magnificent, and seeing his yearly labor of love for his children touched my crotchety old heart. ( )

A delightful collection of letters written by J.R.R Tolkien, as Father Christmas (and sometimes as The North Polar Bear) to his children over the years. ( )

From 1920 to 1943, [a:J.R.R. Tolkien|656983|J.R.R. Tolkien|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1434625177p2/656983.jpg] wrote letters from Father Christmas for his four children, recounting his adventures in getting read for Christmas. As traditions between fathers and children go, this is wonderful. As reading goes, it is surprisingly good, considering he never apparently considered them himself for publication. I think this book would be best read to a child around that time of year, and in that situation could easily become something quite magical. For myself, the most remarkable part are the lovely ink and paint pictures made to go with the letters. It was quite sad to me that Tolkien's youngest child, Priscilla, outgrew the practice in 1943, while the war was still in full swing, as I somehow wanted closure to the troubles referred to in the letters, but that's just me. As I said, Tolkien never intended to publish them.

If you buy this title, make sure you get an edition that includes the drawings. This edition and a few others include copies of some of the handwritten letters as well, which was nice to see. ( )
