5-1/4" x 7-1/2". The epic story of a lone boy destined to become a legend throughout the ages.
  • Actually, this is the third Kringle I've purchased. I am 68 years old, and this is a book for middle school age children, but glancing at the opening pages,I was pulled into its magic. I have enjoyed it thoroughly --- three readings in the past 4 years!

    It's the story of the boy who becomes Santa Claus, and WHY. It has all the prerequisites for an adventure story: a half-grown orphaned boy named Kringle --- after the sound a tiny bell makes --- whose wise old grandmother is kidnapped by terrible goblins who mean to take over the world. Barely escaping himself, he stumbles upon a beautiful land of strong, generous elves who band with Kringle to rid the world of goblins. Their numerous grand adventures along the way are imaginative and different. I cheered them on the whole way!

    I've given this book twice as gifts to kids, and advised their moms to read it with them. One, at least, is, and whispered to me as she came into church, "That's a great book!"

  • One of my family's favorite Christmas Reads. We read it (aloud) as a family each and every year. (My son even named his dog after the main character!!). At first glance it may seem a bit simplistic, but honestly it is a beautiful story of the human spirit and all the complexities it contains. The mixture of history and fantasy is intriguing and fascinating. Don't miss out on this wonderful tale!

  • This is my absolute favorite holiday story. I read it ever year. I love how it is able to blend Yule and Christmas so effortlessly while including a wonderfully imaginative origin story for Santa. Great for all ages and wonderful read aloud story.

  • Reading this to my kids. They are loving it.

  • This book is rich in detail, mood and has the feel of an old, timeless epic story. This is a good book for parents to expose their children to first before the great quest stories out there in fantasy fiction.

    The author has taken complex story elements and made them accessible without writing down to kids. This is a chapter book parents will enjoy reading with their kids.

  • This is now among my favorite Christmas stories of all time. Tony Abbott combines the literal Christmas with myth and legend and presents a masterpiece. I liked it so much I bought 9 copies as Christmas presents!

  • A unique, high fantasy look at the origin of Santa with a healthy dose of spirituality mixed in. There's also some nice action. Definitely worth a read.

  • The book arrived quickly and in perfect shape. I have no idea how good the book is, my 9 year old had read it in AR reading and wanted his own copy. He had it on his wish list for Christmas and was so surprised when he unwrapped it. He reads a few pages when we go to town or while sitting in front of the fireplace. I have to give it 5 stars for interest alone.
