  In FINDING FATHER CHRISTMAS, Miranda Carson's search for her father leads her unexpectedly to London with only a few feeble clues as to who he might be. Immediately welcomed into a family that doesn't recognize her, and whom she's quickly coming to love, she faces a terrible decision/5(8). Both Methuen Canadian editions/printing: Father Christmas Letters () is ex-library with all of the usual markings, so Good condition overall, and complete with no dust jacket as issued, and; Film Book of Lord of the Rings () book is Near Fine condition while the dust jacket is Very Good condition (mostly two tears and some overall rubbing).

But for poor Father Christmas, that means his hardest night of work is ahead. It's cold, he's tired - and there's so much to do. There's a reason why this book has stayed a children's classic for over 40 years. It is 'blooming' funny to see Father Christmas slog through the night, growing ever-more grumpy and in need of brandy and mince : Raymond Briggs. The change to our modern image of Father Christmas was an invention of Coca Cola marketing. Winter being the least thirsty time of the year, it was decided to market an association with Father Christmas/Nicholas, showing him as a friendly portly old man in the red and white colours of Coca Cola, and this has now become his dominant image.

Christmas for Miranda is a painful reminder of the family she never had. Her mother died when she was young, never revealing the identity of her father. But, three days before Christmas, she unexpectedly receives a clue as to the whereabouts that takes her to a beautiful New England town where she meets Ian, a young man who helps with her search. The Real Father Christmas St. Nicholas rescued sailors, saved women from brothels, and was patron saint to pawnbrokers.
