the Book of Kringle, Legend of the North Pole

About the Book of Kringle, Legend of the North Pole

This 31 page beautifully illustrated book explains the legend of the North Pole, how it began with an evil king ruling over the elves. We learn about how the elves used to have to spend their days mining for crystals and that happiness and joy was not allowed. Through the story we see how the elves believed in the spirit of Christmas, despite a king that wanted otherwise, and how it became that they could work together to bring about Santa Claus.
