kringle
I finished Kringle by Tony Abbott last night. It was a fun book telling the legend of Santa Claus. Well done, but I wish it had existed when I was about 10 years old. it would have been magical then.

In the book, all different mythologies are integrated, and well done. Solstice, elves, runse tones, parts of fairy tales, , santa myths, and christianity. Nicely blended and it is the first time I’ve ever really seen christianity treated as being equally( as opposed to more ) important in a mythological tale.

fun book especially for the 7 to 12 year old crowd.
