This is an excellent book for reading aloud before the holidays. Themes include forgiveness, triumph over evil, and perserverance. Girls and boys alike will enjoy the epic scale of the main character's journey and the classic good versus evil theme. Lord of the Rings for pre-teens!

This was by far the best story of how Santa Clause came to be that I have ever read. It combines elements of christianity, paganism, myth and folklore. And it works. It totally makes sense. A great read for the up coming holidays.

I fell in love with this book the year it came out! Each year my husband would buy me one, two or thee Christmas themed books. This is my hands down favorite!!  Sadly, I cannot find my original book, and so I bought another. I will continue to look for other copies so that I may find enough for my three sons and my three grandchildren to have, to one day read to their children. This story combines all parts of the Christmas story, from magic, to magick, to the Christ child, to elves. From challenges and determination to hope and love.  I wish my grandchildren lived close to me so that reading this throughout the month of December would have become a tradition. I hope it does in fact become one for them as parents. It's too bad that it's not carried by B & N anymore.  I'll find enough copies though, for my family.  Tony Abbott, you have created a fantastic realm that is the true spirit of Christmas. Gregg Call, your illustrations complement this book beautifully.  I LOVE books, so it's usually impossible to nail me down on my favorite book. In this genre of Seasonal Stories, I have no problems at all in coming up with my hands down favorite. BUY IT, READ IT, you'll fall in love with it too. I promise.

First read this book in middle school over 5 years ago, and I fell in love with it! Great book for anyone of any age in my opinion.

This book is perfect as an annual Christmas read-aloud. Combines the stories of the Gift Giver (Santa Clause) and the birth of the Christ child into one book. We have read it at least 4 or 5 years in a row and the story never gets old. Wonderful family Christmas tradition.
