Klappentext

This Christmas classic combines solid historical fact with glorious legend to deliver the definitive story of Santa Claus. For anyone who has ever wondered, you're right to believe in him!

In this "book that deserves classic status" (The Dallas Morning News) Santa reveals his story for the first time. Nicholas (his real name) was born in the Middle Eastern Country of Lycia to wealthy parents who died when he was young. The kind people of Lycia taught him the lessons of goodness and generosity, which he began to practice as a child by sharing wealth with those in need. As a young man, Nicholas realized he possessed special abilities to distribute his presents to deserving children everywhere. And so it was that Santa broadened his gift-giving and spread his message to many others who also valued his belief in the goodness of giving.

Families will delight in each chapter of this Christmas classic - one per each cold December night leading up to Christmas! And who better to lead us through seventeen centuries of Christmas magic than good ol' Saint Nick himself?
