The Christmas Letter
By Francis Eugene Wood
Illustrated by Robert W. McDermott
In The Christmas Letter author Francis Wood tells a thought-provoking story about an orphaned child whose letter to Santa is lost for 45 years. When the letter is discovered and brought to Santa the old gift-giver is so touched by the boy's words that he sets out to find him. Wood weaves his story in and out of fantasy with graceful imagination and the wisdom of an old soul.
