History and Christmas

I really enjoyed this story. It's entertaining for both young and old and has just enough history to make it interesting and keep the book going. I would highly recommend this for a family trip to the grandparents or where ever the family is driving for Christmas. The narrator is top notch and fit very nicely into my concept of what Santa should sound like...and who knew Santa would be so touchy about his weight? :-) And as for Atilla - I believed it - salvation at Christmas time.

a nice idea

This is a nice idea for a holiday listen, Santa's evolution and development down through the years. In order for the story to work, however, one must accept the concept that Santa collects historical figures for his "merry band" of helpers. These helpers become Santa's toy makers and aid Santa in their distribution. These helpers also aid Santa with the completion of other points in history that new listeners will discover for themselves. The reader was a perfect choice, the production was top notch, however I couldn't make the previously mentioned leap to make to story work. Attila the Hun making toys in Santa's workshop??? No, I don't think so.
