J. Michael Sims wrote this story, long ago, to read to his oldest child, Christopher. By the time Jonathan arrived, and Elizabeth, the reading had become an annual family tradition. Now, many years later, Michael still gathers the Sims clan around the tree every Christmas to read Young Claus aloud. Michael still writes and lives, bewildered by childhood, fatherhood, and earning a livelihood, in Wimberely, Texas just outside of Austin.From Booklist:
Gr. 2^-4. Sims' saga of the boy-who-would-be-Santa tells of a rebellious young orphan who sets out to discover his destiny and finds the gifts of sharing and love. Along the way he encounters a giant named Mountain, a group of lost elves, some enchanted creatures, and a magic sleigh bell. Originally crafting this as a tale for his own children, Sims intends it to be a family read-aloud, shared over several days. While some will find this fantasy overly sentimental and somewhat didactic, others (fans of Saint-Exupery's The Little Prince and Bach's Jonathan Livingston Seagull, for example) will be charmed, which will make it a popular addition to the holiday shelf.
