Finished yesterday, thought that this was a great book, full of Christmas magic, and Tolkien's imagination. Review here


Serf | 100 comments Really enjoying this, as a parent I found myself laughing when santa left a note on stephen's day about the present bear forgot to deliver.
The mischief and predicaments bear finds himself in make me smile.


Charlotte (charley_100) | 322 comments I too really enjoyed this. What a gift for your children! I would love to do something similar for my wee boy though on a smaller scale as who could imitate Tolkien!! The war references stood out..how to explain to little ones that Christmas is sparse through the war years.......I know, a goblin war in Lapland. Genius!


Cathy | 553 comments Loved this. Such beautiful illustrations. And all the North Polar Bear's mishaps, and all the other creatures too. Wonderful!


Jason (jasondenness) | 1877 comments Fantastic book, he put some much effort into making this for his kids. Really liked how he was also helping his daughter handle WW2.

It would have been nice to see what his kids were writing to father Christmas too.

I loved the way that all the stories link year after year
