Dedicated to the child within all of us Bringing the high-flying talk 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 askd 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!
