This recording comprises a festive reading of letters written by Tolkien to his children, in the guise of Father Christmas, over a period of 20 years. The letters tell the adventures, and misadventures, of Father Christmas' life at the North Pole, and of his helpers, the mischievous North Polar Bear and sensible Ilbereth the Elf. The letters are perfect for reading aloud, with plenty of humor. They also are interspersed with carols and Christmasy music to give a real seasonal feel.
