Publisher's Summary

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

Every year, the children of J.R.R. Tolkien would write to Father Christmas, and the letters they received told wonderful stories of his adventures at the North Pole.

These humorous tales are brought to life by Derek Jacobi as Father Christmas, John Moffatt as Polar Bear, and Christian Rodska as Ilbereth the Elf, complete with specially composed music.

    Story
    "A fun little read."
    What made the experience of listening to Letters from Father Christmas the most enjoyable?

    The humour and wonderful narration made this a great listen.


    What does Derek Jacobi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Derek Jacobi read with tongue in cheek and in great humour and the listening experience was very enjoyable.


    Any additional comments?

    A few letters written to Tolkien's daughter Priscilla were left out of the audiobook edition from about 1937 to 1943 I think. These are included in the Ebook edition with wonderful illustrations from J.R.R. Tolkien.
