Please note this review is actually of the physical book, not the audiobook, sorry but there is no physical book option on Ciao! Letters to Father Christmas was both very cute and yet also very serious. I loved the passion that Tolkien obviously put into these letters to make his children happy...

Product Information : Letters from Father Christmas - J. R. R. Tolkien

Manufacturer's product description

This revised edition of Tolkien's famous illustrated letters from 'Father Christmas' includes extracts and pictures not included in the original publication 25 years ago. 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 strange spidery handwriting and a beautiful coloured drawing or some sketches. The letters were from Father Christmas. They told wonderful tales of life at the North Pole: how all the reindeer got loose and scattered presents all over the place; how the accident-prone Polar Bear climbed the North Pole and fell through the roof of Father Christmas's house into the dining-room; how he broke the Moon into four pieces and made the Man in it fall into the back garden; how there were wars with the troublesome horde of goblins who lived in the caves beneath the house! Sometimes the Polar Bear would scrawl a note and sometimes Ilbereth the Elf would write in his elegant flowing script adding yet more life and humour to the stories. No reader young or old can fail to be charmed by the inventiveness and 'authenticity' of Tolkien's Letters from Father Christmas.To coincide with the 25th anniversary of its first publication Letters from Father Christmas has been reformatted into an attractive and affordable new format with the inclusion of every one of the delightful letters and pictures that Tolkien sent to his children.
