The perfect Christmas gift, this beautiful book explains how the bearded, red clad, big bellied, reindeer driving jovial gent came to be the face of Christmas, and reveals the historical origins of Saint Nicholas over seventeen hundred years ago in the Eastern Roman Empire.

And for any nervous parents out there - don't worry, there are no Father Christmas 'spoilers' between the pages of this book - ensuring the wonderous children's whisperings of Santa will continue... for another couple of years at least!
