Well written and beautifully illustrated, this book is a must have on the permanent library of any child who enjoys Christmas magic. It has the right size to be read before sending the child to bed. It will keep their attention to the end. It should take no more than 30 minutes to read to whole book. Plot is simple: Father Weisberg has a toy workshop and produces toys to Santa Claus. He has four children: Chiska, Duchy, Alvaro and Belstarr. He receives the award of the best toymaker of all. Duri...more
WOW! It has been a long time since I have felt like this about a new Christmas book! I love the Grinch, Polar Express, Christmas Carol etc. And If I may, I'd like to put Belstarr The Lost Toymaker into this category. A unique story, with intriguing characters. It had me on the edge, a page turner. My children loved it also. I would certainly make this your next purchase, the poetry is lovely. Here's to Wolf-Hawk Writing, whoever and wherever you are!

I bought this Christmas rhyming book from Amazon for my little brother last month (October 2013) He simply adored the magical characters and story. A topsy turby tale of Belstarr who has been put under a spell by Drake Hausen. She must find belief in Christmas before Christmas has gone forever. It has shadows of the Grinch crossed with the Polar Express. Perfect x
This book was given to me by my aunt from New York. Belstarr is a Christmas toy builder who is really good at making toys. A baddy named Drake Hasen takes over Christmas and uses Belstarr to make his toys for him. Santa and the gang stop him just before Christmas day. A lovely story especially the ending, but I won't spoil it for you! RB
We wrote this book for everyone who loves Christmas, because we do. You can read it snuggled down on Christmas Eve with your loved ones or enjoy during advent. If one child says it is their favorite book then we have achieved our goal. We really hope you all enjoy the story for many years to come.
