When young Clause is found by the Master Woodsman, he is taken to the forest of Burzee to be raised and cared for. Clause learns to respect nature and life. His adoptive mother is a nymph who cares deeply for him and when Clause becomes a man he journeys into the world from whence he came.
Clause settles in a beautiful valley and learns that he has a great talent for making toys. These he begins to make for the children who live in nearby villages, for Clause greatest desire is to make the lives of children happy.
The story follows Clause as he discovers new ways to create toys, who to give them to, his first sleigh ride, and the the protection his friends from Burzee afford him. As Clause's life comes to its close, his friends from Burzee, the immortals, gather together to discuss what may be done to allow Clause to continue the great he has done for all the children near and far.
Here are the answers to all of the questions:
- Why do we have a Christmas Tree?
- Why do we hang our stockings on the fireplace?
- How will Santa Claus deliver presents if we don't have a fireplace?
- Who is Santa's Mom?
And the list goes on and on. You will be surprised at the "Naughty and Nice List".
This should be required reading for every parent, no later than their child's first birthday.
Now all we need is a book with the answers all of the other questions:
- Why is the sky blue?
- How come I can't go to Billy's house after school?
- But if I don't like 'em, why do I have to eat 'em?
In summary, it is the tale of Santa's life from the time he was an orphaned baby to the present. It explains why we hang our stockings, how Santa can leave presents for children with no chimney, where he got his reindeer, why he only flies at night, why he created toys, and so much more. It weaves together a caste of grand characters to make the world brighter and all the more beautiful. While this version lacks the illustrations I've heard other versions contain, I found that the tale was descriptive enough that my imagination created the images with an ease.
I gave this five stars because of the imaginative plot, colorful characters, writing style, and how successfully it was written in order to be accessible to all children. This is a book that can be read to people of all ages.
