One wintry night near the top of the world in Lapland, a brilliant new star appears in the sky. Gazing at it in wonder, a lonely wood-carver is sure it is the sign of something strange and wonderful. When the star moves eastward, he packs his carvings in a sack, harnesses the reindeer to his sled, and follows it halfway across the world to a lowly stable where a newborn baby is lying in a manger. Miraculously transformed by his encounter with the blessed child, the wood-carver returns home, determined to commemorate the child s birth. And so on every Christmas Eve since, he harnesses the reindeer to his sled and brings joy to millions of children around the world. Laplanders call him Father Christmas. American children know him as Santa Claus. Kenneth Steven s deeply moving story, beautifully complemented by Lily Moon s luminous paintings, joyfully communicates the true spirit of the holiday to believers of all ages.
