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 a strange, spidery handwriting and a beautiful colored drawing or painting. The letters were from Father Christmas. They told wonderful tales of life at the North Pole: how the reindeer got loose and scattered presents all over the place; how the accident-prone North 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, and many more. No reader, young or old, can fail to be charmed by Tolkien’s inventiveness in this classic holiday treat.

The Art of Childhood and Adolescence is composed of completely new research on the development of representational thinking from infancy through to adolescence. It makes an important contribution to the theory of children's development and to practitioners' understanding, as well as suggesting new paths of inquiry. The book draws on highly detailed longitudinal studies, conducted over 24 years (20 in London and 4 in Singapore). Line drawings and photographs are used to illustrate important concepts. Matthews, highly respected internationally, also sheds light on current debates, such as the opposition of culturally specific and universal development in children the world over.

SUMMARY Will The Real Father Christmas Please Stand Up The author enjoyed several years as a professional Father Christmas in a major capital city department store. During those years, he meticulously recorded details of the best of hundreds of visits he had to the infamous Santa den. He was prompted by his employment agency to publish these records, but it has taken him 15 years to do so. Now, for the first time, he is presenting the public with a unique record of many of those intimate events in his own inimitable style and laced with some philosophy about attitudes towards Father Christmas. The book delivers nothing but true events and leads the reader through every stage of a Christmas season, but presenting them in an interesting personality format, rather than a straight diarised version. The humour, sadness, delight and despair are all here in this one true record of Santa interviews and the reader will undoubtedly recognise themselves somewhere in the pages, whether it really is them or not.

Santa Claus, Indiana, acquired its famous name in 1856 and has been celebrating the spirit of Christmas ever since. Postmaster James Martin began answering children’s letters to Santa and his elves in 1914, a tradition that continues to this day and makes Santa Claus a favored destination for those seeking the holiday spirit. The town’s unique name prompted Robert Ripley to feature it in his popular cartoon strip, and businessmen such as Carl Barrett and Milton Harris raced to erect Christmas attractions as early as 1935. Beating Walt Disney by nearly a decade, Louis J. Koch opened Santa Claus Land, the nation’s first theme park, in 1946. Today, visitors still flock to Santa Claus to share in the magic of “America’s Christmas Hometown.”
