J. R. R. Tolkien – Letters from Father Christmas

 

This book was really cute, a lovely little read which anyone can enjoy. Basically, J. R. R. Tolkien – the creator of Middle Earth and author of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, for the uninitiated – used to write letters to his children every Christmas, complete with illustrations, that were purportedly from Father Christmas.

In this book of them, a bunch of those letters are faithfully reproduced, alongside some of the original illustrations. It’s a cute, heartwarming read, and impressive because you get both a glimpse at Tolkien’s domestic life through the messages to the kids, as well as a bunch of fascinating stories that Father Christmas tells about the latest goings on at the north pole.

And there are goblins and elves as well, of course, as well as a clumsy Polar Bear. Awesome!
