    For most of us, young and old, Santa Claus is a jolly old man, looking exactly as he is described in the classic poem "A Visit from St. Nicholas." In fact, few people realize that there was a real Saint Nicholas. He was the Bishop of Myra and lived during the fourth century. In this beautifully illustrated and richly designed book, Marianna Mayer creates an inviting portrait of the man who became legendary for his generosity and miraculous acts of kindness. Using a similar elegant format as in her critically acclaimed title The Twelve Apostles, Mayer pairs each story of a famous miracle with exquisite reproductions of medieval and Renaissance paintings. But when did St. Nicholas become known as Santa Claus? Mayer's knowledgeable introduction and concluding note, as well as the familiar poem "A Visit from St. Nicholas," all help to shed light on this amazing transformation. Her beautiful book captures the spirit of Christmas and will fascinate readers of all ages.
