About this title


A noble individual's rise from humble beginnings and the struggle between brothers for dominance form two of the basic stories that attract people to literature and history, both personal and global. In How Nicholas Became Santa Clause, Sandra Jo and Darrell R. Troupe, a husband-and-wife writing team, invite readers to enter the world of Nicholas, a boy whose simple life on the farm takes a turn for the adventurous when he makes a discovery. As the only one who can prevent an evil prince from turning against his two brothers and seizing the crown in the wake of their father's death, Nicholas discovers he has greater depths within himself and more potent connections to the magical Orphic Forest than he knew at the outset. Tapping these wellsprings of strength, Nicholas becomes the champion both of human and Oddlings in his daring fight to restore balance and peace to his suffering world. If you find yourself drawn to tales of good vanquishing evil, of the lowly discovering unknown nobility within themselves, and of life in lands where the mundane and magical commingle, then How Nicholas Became Santa Clause will become for you a book that invites you to turn to the next page . . . and the next.

Product Description:

Under the rule of King Richard Dobromil, evil forces dedicated to the destruction of the Kingdom's remarkable peace remain banished beyond the Borderlands. The combined Kingdoms of Illuminae, and Waters enjoy a generation of unprecedented peace. When the King dies two of his three sons pledge a greater peace while the third, out of envy and corruption, pledges to use the forbidden magic of the Firestone ring to destroy the other two. Marked for death before his birth, only a farm boy stands between the Prince and his evil plans to usurp the crown. Surviving to age eighteen, the farm boy Nicholas thinks his life ordinary until he discovers he is born to fulfill a destiny spanning far beyond his natural life. Along the journey to his destiny, he becomes aware of the power of the magical Orphic Forest, and his special relationship with it, and its Oddling creatures. Encouraged by the older brother of Father Time, King Stanislaus, and guided by Wizard Zorna, and helped by Trolls, Sprites, Floral gnomes, Elves, Dragons, and Dwarfs, he becomes champion of both Human and Oddling creatures in his daring fight to restore balance to his suffering world.
