November Highlights

Letters From Father Christmas by J.R.R Tolkien

Letters From Father Christmas by J.R.R Tolkien

Every December an envelope bearing a stamp from the North Pole would arrive for J.R.R. Tolkien’s children. Inside would be a letter in a strange, spidery handwriting and a beautiful coloured drawing or painting. The letters were from Father Christmas. They told wonderful tales of life at the North Pole. No reader, young or old, can fail to be charmed by Tolkien’s inventiveness in this classic holiday treat.
