From the Back Cover:

A new addition to the bestselling Legend Series, by award-winning author Dandi Daley mackall.

This gentle Christmas book introduces the original St. Nicholas and tells why we give gifts in remembrance of the greatest gift of all. Nick is much more interested in contemplating his presents under the tree than he is in being dragged along for last-minute shopping with his dad. But while his father's off
shopping, Nick hears someone say his name--it's a mall Santa, telling a group of children a story about the original St. Nick. In the long-ago story, a wealthy
boy named Nicholas is moved by the sight of poor children and decides to use his family's wealth to help the needy, starting anonymously with his less-fortunate friends. Young Nick is inspired as at last he--and young readers--understand the joy of giving. A note at the end explains how the story of this early Nicholas might have grown into the Santa Claus of legend.
Bright, festive artwork accompanies the text of master storyteller Dandi Mackall, who reminds children that God gave us the greatest gift ever given.

DANDI DALEY MACKALL won her first writing contest when she was ten years old with fifty words on why she wanted to be a batboy. She won, but they wouldn't let a girl be a batboy. It was her first taste of rejection. She bounced back and has since published 400 books. Dandi lives in rural West Salem, OH, and enjoys her husband and kids, who will still, on occasion, be up for a game of family softball.

GUY PORFIRIO, a native of Chicago, graduated from the American Academy of Art in Chicago and continued his training at New York's School of Visual Arts. Guy's passion for painting and telling a good story has inspired him to illustrate
numerous books for children. Guy lives in Tucson, AZ, with his family.
