Great find for Tolkien fans

This was a special find. Tolkien wrote special letters from "Father Christmas" to his children each Christmas, over many years. The book includes copies of the handwritten letters and illustrations, in color.

Darling!

It's absolutely wonderful to get a peek into the mind of Tolkien through the letters of "Father Christmas" to Tolkien's children! He is imaginative and loving, and a terrific artist, and comes up with the greatest stories! This is so worth the money I can't tell you. It's darling!
