There can never be too many picture books to occupy young ones at the happiest, most exciting time of the year. 'The Maiden Voyage Of Kris Kringle' is a welcome addition to the popular lists of Christmas tales. Illustrated with luminous full-page paintings by Calico Studio our story begins with Saint Nicholas and the elves in The Land Beyond Yon where they're busily making preparations to bring joy to many children. One day when Goe was collecting wood in the forest he found a beautiful doll inside a hollow tree. He took it to Nicholas who immediately recognized the doll as one he had made for a little girl named Kristina several years ago. As it happened Kristina was born deaf, thus she did not speak the way the other children did and they made fun of her. However, she could speak freely to her doll. Kristina loved to read and as time passed and she read and spoke to her doll she began to speak just like the other children even though she could not hear herself. As a young woman Kristina became a teacher. Yet, her illness continued to plague her until one day she fell into a very deep sleep. What happens to her next is a wonderful surprise for all - even better than a gaily wrapped present!
