The Blacksmith's Gift, An Orphan's Promise, and A Carpenter's Legacy elegantly retell the Santa Claus stories - re-imagining them in a more realistic world, while preserving belief, joy and wonder for younger children. These books can be read independently as bedtime stories or as a series; all examine Santa, the Christmas holiday, and how we create hope, success and meaning.
In A Carpenter's Legacy, the lesson that life can become what you choose to believe is imparted to children in a hospital over Christmas by Grandfather Ian, a doctor who, along with his friend Prita, was part of a toy making group of orphans in Norway who called themselves Santa s Elves and were taught by a kindly carpenter named Mr. Kloss.

Beautiful books! Well written, and the illustrations are so in tune with your text! I enjoy reading to and working with children and look forward to grand kids some day. Your books will be on their reading list. --Lynn Johnston, creator of the comic strip For Better or For Worse
