What made the experience of listening to Letters from Father Christmas the most enjoyable?
The humour and wonderful narration made this a great listen.
What does Derek Jacobi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Derek Jacobi read with tongue in cheek and in great humour and the listening experience was very enjoyable.
Any additional comments?
A few letters written to Tolkien's daughter Priscilla were left out of the audiobook edition from about 1937 to 1943 I think. These are included in the Ebook edition with wonderful illustrations from J.R.R. Tolkien.

A much better idea than the elf on the shelf. As I listened to the story I was thinking of the possibility of doing this with my future little ones

This beautiful collection of letters that Tolkien wrote to his children as replies from Father Christmas is full of humour and shows the North Pole through a dreaming child's eyes.
The character of a mischievous polar bear takes you into a Christmas adventure that will make you laugh and will let your imagination run wild.
The narration is simple which will entertain either adult or child listener and is wonderfully supported by uplifting Christmas music.
If you're a fan of Tolkien and love Christmas or are just looking for a story for your children during the festive season, this book is perfect.
The only downside is that the book is short however it is quite a gem.

Being 50 years of age I thought I would not enjoy this. How wrong I was, since listening to this I bought the book to see the pictures mentioned. Book and Audio book are both very enjoyable. The music between letters to me symbolised the passage of time until the next Christmas and was enjoyable.
A real shame the audio book is but a short one.
