By: Valentine Davies
I was born August 25, 1905 in New York, New York. I went to Yale University for drama school after graduating from Michigan. I am a writer, director, and producer. I was president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. I was a member of the Writers Guild of America Which now gives the Valentine Davies Award as one of the highest awards. I also fought in World War II.
When I was a child, yes I had my doubts in Santa but now I am a firm believer in him, and true Christmas spirit. I was becoming very frustrated with Christmas being commercialized. This book brought some of the old Christmas spirit back to the lives of people. This was my goal in publishing this book, and it seems that I may have met that goal.
This book is about a old man that very much so resembles Santa Claus and even believes himself to be. Macys needs a new Santa Claus and he fits the spot so they hire him. The rest of the book is about his journey of trying to get Christmas back the way it was. But he gets into some trouble and may be asked to leave the town, because he is considered insane and his lawyer and the rest of the town that believes in him must try to convince the judge that he is truly Santa Claus.
The theme of this book is most definitely believe in what you want and dont let other people around you influence what you do and dont believe in. This book gives a very good example of this.
