    Everyone knows Santa Claus as the jolly old fellow who delivers presents on Christmas Eve. But who was he and where did he come from? This novel presents an answer. Nikolas by name, he was a lonely, scrawny twig of a boy, meting out a meager existence in Finland’s frozen tundra with his loving father. But disaster soon strikes—his father embarks on a lengthy journey of disreputable origin, and young Nikolas is taken under the wing of his cruel Aunt Carlotta. He runs away from home and seeks his father with the help of an equally dismal mouse and a loyal reindeer named Blitzen. The cold, lonely plains of Finland plague Nikolas almost as much as the numerous bad guys standing in his way. Reminiscent of “classic” children’s fairy tales, this children’s novel is excellent in its own right. With a fun, exciting plot, clever jokes, and a vast array of colorful characters, this “origin of Santa” story makes for great Christmas reading! 234 pages, hc.

    A perfect gift for Little House fans (Christmas or anytime), this book includes a compilation of six short stories by Laura Ingalls Wilder about her childhood Christmases. In Christmas in the Big Woods, Laura is 4 years old in the woods of Wisconsin and is waiting for her relatives to arrive. In Christmas on the Prairie, Laura is 6 years old, in Indian territory, and afraid the rain storms will keep Santa from finding her. In Christmas at Plum Creek, Laura is 8, and before realizing the true spirit of Christmas, is afraid Santa won't visit because their new home in Minnesota has no fireplace. In Christmas for Farmer Boy, the subject switches to Almanzo Wilder in New York as he celebrates the holiday with family and food. In Christmas During the Long Winter, Laura is older in Dakota territory, cares for her family, and helps plan a Christmas celebration in May after a harsh winter. In Christmas in the Golden Years, Laura is engaged to Almanzo, but the couple is apart for the holidays and Laura is upset - until a visitor arrives. This is a great treasury of Christmas stories for Little House fans. Black and white illustrations sprinkled throughout. 144 pgs, hc. ~ Rachel
