The Story Behind Santa Claus The Book of Secrets
In 2012, Russell became a father and on Christmas day, after waking his little daughter for her first ever Christmas, arrived downstairs to quite a surprise. There resting on the mantelpiece above the fire, was a beautifully wrapped gift with an envelope resting by its side. He assumed it was a present from his wife, placed there as a Christmas surprise.
Upon picking up the letter, he soon realised that it was something very special. The beautifully scribed writing, the embossed red wax seal, his mind began to race with excitement. Could it be? Yes, it was. A letter from Santa Claus. In the letter he told of how he could see that the modern world was changing so fast. The arrival of new things, such as; the Internet and films, meant that children now had access to so much information that he was worried the real truth about Christmas might be lost forever. As such, he had left a journal containing knowledge that had remained a closely guarded secret for centuries.
He said that, as an illustrator and writer who kept Christmas alive in his heart all year round, Russell would know what to do with it and as such, help spread the truth about Christmas to the children of the world. So, Santa Claus: The Book of Secrets was born containing the truth behind one of the world’s oldest and greatest mysteries, in the words of Santa Claus himself.
