Letters from Father Christmas | [J.R.R. Tolkien]

Letters from Father Christmas

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.

    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.
