9780007463374: Letters from Father Christmas

Can you imagine writing to Father Christmas and actually getting a reply?

For more than twenty years, the children of J.R.R. Tolkien received letters from the North Pole -- from Father Christmas himself! They told wonderful stories of mischief and disaster, adventures and battles: how 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, and many others.
Now, for the first time, these letters are brought to life with specially arranged holiday music.

About the Author:

J.R.R. TOLKIEN (1892-1973) is the creator of Middle-earth and author of such classic and extraordinary works of fiction as The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion. His books have been translated into more than fifty languages and have sold many millions of copies worldwide.

From AudioFile:

Don't miss this little gem amidst all the fanfare of Tolkien's novels and Hollywood film. Each year, starting in the early 1920s Tolkien responded to his children's letters to Father Christmas with notes and drawings. He introduces the chores of packing the many packages, the mishaps of weather and the mischief of his faithful helper, North Polar Bear, to his sons and daughter--whose names are added or omitted from the letters as the family grows. Derek Jacobi is fully in the spirit of these epistles, and listeners hear how Tolkien, also, elaborates with one year's letters, and can only send a few lines and a drawing the next. The one missed step is the annoying choice of just one music selection which separates the letters. Nevertheless, make this audio program a holiday tradition.

Descripción HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 2012. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Revised edition.. Language: English . Brand New Book. This revised edition of Tolkien s famous illustrated letters from Father Christmas to his children includes a number of pictures and letters that have not been seen in print before. The perfect Christmas gift for Tolkien lovers of all ages. This classic festive book of Tolkien s amazing Father Christmas letters written to his children between the 1920s and the 1940s has been reworked into a new and attractive edition. It contains brand new high-quality digital reproductions of his amazing letters and pictures, including a number them that have never been printed before. `My dear children, I am more shaky than usual this year. The North Polar Bear s fault. It was the biggest bang in the world, and the most monstrous firework there has ever been. It turned the North Pole black! 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. From the first note to Tolkien s eldest son in 1920 to the final poignant letter to his daughter in 1943, this book collects all the remarkable letters and pictures in one enchanting edition. No reader, young or old, can fail to be charmed by the inventiveness of Tolkien s Letters from Father Christmas. Nº de ref. de la librería AA89780007463374
