Inhaltsangabe: "Faith is believing in things when common sense tells you not to." If those words ring a bell, you've probably seen--and fallen in love with--the popular holiday film based on this heartwarming Christmas story. Dreamed up by the author as he watched the Macy's parade with his own family, it follows the emotional transformation of a thoroughly modern, no-nonsense mother who has taught her young daughter all too well that fairy stories are make-believe and dreams can't come true. The catalyst for this change: an old man who claims to be...Santa Claus. This beautiful version features color illustrations and spot art by the great Tomie de Paola, a winner of the Caldecott Medal, whose books have sold more than five million copies.
A white-bearded gentleman who appears at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade fills in for an unfit Santa Claus-and is asked to become the store's resident Santa. This Kris Kringle believes he is Santa, as do children from all over the city, and reindeer at the zoo nearby. A few skeptical souls try to have him declared insane, but miraculously, the State of New York, with the help of the U.S. Postal Service, come to the gent's rescue by declaring that he is indeed Santa Claus.
Since its first publication in 1947, this tale has been treasured by generations of believers, making this Academy Award-winning story part of holiday traditions all across America. This facsimile edition faithfully re-creates the first hardcover publication, inviting new families or readers to celebrate both the story and the charm of the original design.
A brief historical note, new in this edition, details the simultaneous development of the book and film.
