The First Flight of Saint Nicholas: The Nicholas Stories: No 2 (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


As parents and grandparents, we know that timeless tales generate endless questions about our holiday traditions, such as How do reindeer fly? What is the magic of silver bells at Christmas? What is the Spirit of Christmas? How does Saint Nicholas visit so many children in just one night? Nicholas travels to The Land Beyond Yon, where the elves live beneath a dome people believe is only the aurora borealis. The elves have been waiting for him, but Nicholas soon discovers that making childrens wishes come true is not his only task. The elves do not know how to work together, bickering and working against each other. While Nicholas helps the elves learn how to cooperate, he has a problem of his own: how will he deliver toys to thousands of boys and girls around the world in a single night? Nicholas and the elves find a solution and discover that anything is possible if you just believe. This second book in the Nicholas Stories series will lead your family on a heartwarming journey to a place where gifts of love explain the true meaning of Christmas.
