review The Father Christmas Letters ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub read & download í E-book, or Kindle E-pub ß J.R.R. Tolkien J.R.R. Tolkien ß 9 characters BOOK DESCRIPTIONCan you imagine writing to Father Christmas and actually getting a reply For than twenty years the children of JRR 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. A lovely collection of illustrated letters from Father Christmas to Tolkien s children The tone and content of the letters changes over time to reflect the children growing up and Tolkien Father Christmas doesn t shy away from mentioning the horrors of the world including war and hunger The letters incorporate aspects of the children s lives and things they d written to him but there is some continuity in the stories of what FC and his elves etc get up to Lovely illustrations too There are similarities with Mervyn Peake s Letters from a Lost Uncle which I reviewed HEREA Bonding Book that Made a Tolkienite two actuallyI love this because it prompted Father Christmas to write similar letters to my own child over several years and because it kindled the flames of Tolkien fandom in my child and thus albeit to a lesser extent meWe went on to The Hobbit see my review HERE which I had disliked as a child sowing the seeds of overlapping but distinct reading tastes that continues to this day It also led my child to a world of like minded friends at school university and beyondThe letters my child received and wrote in reply incorporated some of the characters and plot from Tolkien the North Polar Bear for instance but added new characters especially Windley a naughty girl elf As with Tolkien s children the exchanges continued a little after the real author was known but it remained a wonderful imaginative stimulus and a shared semi secret world Lego was a great passion My child had pirate Lego Ancient Egyptian Lego and Star Wars Lego amongst others but really wanted Roman Lego For several years they wrote to Father Christmas asking for some Each year Father Christmas found it harder to come up with a new excuse especially once said child knew the truth of Father Christmas and presented ever challenging arguments as to why the elves could surely make it and that there would be many other enthusiastic recipients Eventually Father Christmas said that most Roman things were ruins now so they could just use regular Lego as ruinsWhen my child turned 18 I asked if they still wanted a stocking from Father Christmas but they said they d rather just have regular presents That year the final gift from Father Christmas was a solitary Lego figure a Roman soldier Thank you internetThe Big uestionWhen just beginning to uestion the plausibility of Father Christmas my child asked How does Father Christmas make a profit probably after listening to my father pontificating on matters of economics and personal finance I d have uestioned the premise that he needs or wants to make a profit but my husband came up with an excellent answer branding licensing and franchisingThe Ethics of Lying about Father ChristmasWhen I was a new mother I wondered about the ethics of telling and acting out such an overt and detailed lie as Father Christmas delivering presents It seemed less obviously fiction than reading Peter Rabbit or recounting fairy stories which I was happy to do I didn t want to deprive my child of a core part of our culture but thought I might feel guilty for deceiving or that they might feel betrayed when the truth came out I need not have worried as soon as my child could talk their vivid imagination was apparent I was drawn into that world and we redrew it together If I hadn t invented Father Christmas and many other fantasies my child would have done so And I am gladOther Imaginary FriendsMy child s purest inventions were Sitty the cat for whom they tried to sneak real cat food into my shopping basket and Sitty s friend Ruffy the dog Distinct personalities evolved and we spent many hours creating retelling and reworking stories about themBut there was one time when I found my child aged about three sobbing uncontrollably Between the stifled hiccuping tears they told me Sitty had said she didn t want to be friends any What sort of imaginary friend says that Fortunately she relented uite uickly there was no long term trauma and it s now a well loved family anecdoteA vivid imagination fed by good books is a powerful symbiotic mystical force Thank you Tolkien

Tolkien ß 9 characters 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 othersNow for the first time these letters are brought to life with specially arranged holiday musicREVIEWTolkien at his relaxed and ingenious best The Times of LondonABOUT. First read 28th November 2015Second read 10th December 2016 John Ronald Reuel Tolkien is best known for his high fantasy series The Lord of the Rings and the pre cursor The Hobbit as well as being one of the foremost respected professors on Anglo Saxon Britain but behind closed doors he was a wonderful father and a tremendous family man He had four children John Michael Christopher and Priscilla and with every passing year they would receive hand written and illustrated replies from Father Christmas detailing all of his escapades up in the North PoleThis book is a wonder to behold I am a pro consumerist anti capitalist far left wing socialist and I pretty much despise Christmas but this book holds within its pages every little thing that I can tolerate about the festive holidays This is what I wish Christmas were still about not spending 50 on cards or buying a PS4 and an XBOX One for your child because they want both of them but loving your family through thick and thin and war and using Father Christmas as a catalyst for teaching young children the importance of giving as well as receiving and the value of moneyEach letter was hand written by Tolkien in a shaky script to denote Father Christmas s advanced years but his drawings were utterly superb Every year Father Christmas would try and sort out all the world s presents but Polar Bear and his friends would upset everything whilst having an enormous amount of fun As the years went by and characters were added and a whole race of Goblins was brought in to wage war against the beautiful splendour of Father ChristmasThe thing that struck me the most about this book is the fact that I was surprised how surprised I was at Tolkien s imagination He also tried to deal with things like war in a way that a child can understand without shying away from how truly terrible it is It is a lesson in Being Bloody Nice and I truly loved this book It made me believe that one day I may end up liking Christmas perhaps maybe even loving itBlog Instagram Twitter Pinterest Shop Etsy
