This Christmas Day tale involves Old St. Nick and his forest friends, their love for each other and children around the world, and their appreciation of the earth. As always, the story is based in Italy and centered around Old St. Nick and his red bird friend.
Upon returning from his annual trip around the world, bringing joy to those near and far, Nick is delighted to find his forest friends waiting for him eager to hear about his travels and exchange gifts.
The charm of this second book in the Old St. Nick series lies in the passion that both Susan Gravely and Alessandro Taddei feel for protecting and preserving nature for generations to come, and to honor the spirit of joy, magic, and generosity personified in Babbo Natale. Gravely’s prose and Taddei’s charming illustrations were inspired by the creation of VIETRI’s Old St. Nick dinnerware collection, a beloved classic that continues to be enjoyed at family gatherings worldwide.
