Publisher's Description

Santa Claus, Father Christmas, Kris Kringle . . . Some historians trace these figures back to a man who lived in Asia Minor more than one thousand years ago. His name was Nicholas, the Bishop of Myra. Over time, the facts of his life merged with legend. But behind the legend lies a remarkable life. Ann Tompert's dramatic and simply told biography presents the life of Nicholas through a skillful blending of fact and legend, while Michael Garland's mosaic art beautifully reflects the Mediterranean world of the fourth century. Whenever we remember the needy at Christmas or give a gift to a loved one, we are living in the spirit of Saint Nicholas, who lives on in the spirit of Christmas.

Author Bio

Ann Tompert is the author of many books for children, including Saint Patrick, which Booklist selected as one of the top ten religious books for children in 1998. She lives in Port Huron, Michigan.

Michael Garland has won numerous awards for his work. He is the illustrator of the Golden Kite Honor Award-winning Leah's Pony, by Elizabeth Friedrich. He lives with his family in Patterson, New York.

Editorial Reviews

"The real strength of this work comes from Garland's amazing mixed-media pictures, which look as though they were made from tiny Byzantine mosaic tiles." --School Library Journal

"Engaging and simple. . . . Children interested in the lives of saints will find a good introduction here." --Booklist

    Love this book. It is straight forward, well written and includes not only what is known but also informs us of the legend. A great book of tradition and celebration.
