to the child within all of us

Bringing the high-flying tale of Santa Claus down to earth, The Blacksmith's Gift is intended for children who question the fantasy version of the legend. For adults, the story shows Christmas as a time of miracles bringing out the best in us.

The Blacksmith's Gift places Santa Claus as a carpenter in Norway around 1900. Possessing a powerful affinity with children, he is discouraged because he and his wife have not had a child of their own. He builds toys, but only for the imagined child he believes he will one day have. When he is asked to build a dollhouse for the blacksmith's daughter - a series of events lead to the birth of a legend.

The Blacksmith's Gift emphasizes the 'true meaning of Christmas' and contains exquisite watercolor paintings; it's a wonderful gift book for just about anyone!
