In telling the rich history of the Christmas gift-giver, Gail Gibbons draws upon many cultures. From the legend of Saint Nicholas to the Dutch Sinter Cleas, from "The Night before Christmas" to Thomas Nast's famous cartoons, her lively, well-researched text and sparkling illustrations show how the changing image of Santa became the beloved symbol of Christmas we know today.---from the publisher
