Diane Stringham Tolley puts a new twist on the perennial mystery of Santa's origins in her Christmas book, “Kris Kringle’s Magic."
Kris Kringle, a handsome young man, moves into Rebecca’s neighborhood. She finds him interesting, but is shocked by his attitude toward the elf servants. He treats them as equals, something no one in the city would even consider.
Kris and Rebecca marry and begin a business delivering products made by the elves to people in need. A tragic accident brings the elves to the brink of an uprising. Something drastic must be done — and it can only be wrought by elf magic.
This well-told, easy-to-read story illustrates how prejudice and discrimination are hurtful and divisive. It also shows the power of true charity. References are made to "Father Creator;" there is no offensive language, but a few scenes include some cruelty and violence.
It's a small hardback — easy for younger hands to hold or tuck into a purse or backpack.
Although the whole family might enjoy reading the story together, it would appeal particularly to those under 12.
Tolley lives with her husband, Grant, in Beaumont, Alberta, Canada.
