The Boy Who Lived In Pudding Lane by Sarah Addington and Illustrated by Gertrude A. Kay from Grafton & Scratch Publishing.
The Boy Who Lived In Pudding Lane -"Being a true account, if only you believe it, of the life and ways of Santa, oldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Claus" first appeared in the American magazine, Ladies Home Journal, for Christmas in 1921 and was published as a hardcover the following year. Author Sarah Addington's charming story of the boyhood life of dear Santa Claus became an instant classic and is lovingly reproduced in a facsimile edition for the first time here, including the original size, page format, and layout.The story follows Santa as he grows up in Pudding Lane, eventually to become the famed gift-giver who flies around the world and would spawn a line of books about the Lane and it cast of characters released by Addington and Kay throughout the 1920s.
My Opinion: I thought this was a very nice book and a great addition to read to kids this holiday season as it takes a different take on Santa Claus as it shows him growing up and how he transformed to become the man who delivers presents on December 25. It’s a very cute tail and the illustrations are wonderful.
