    One thought on “The Man in the Cinder Clouds

    1. Laurel

      THE MAN IN THE CINDER CLOUDS is one of those middle grade books that the grown-ups get sucked into along with their kids. You think you bought if for your young reader but after you browse chapter one you just sort of can't stop.For the kids: The story starts with an adventure gone dreadfully boring as a boy accompanies his dad on an expedition to the North Pole. He discovers that the exotic location can't overcome the drudgery of hanging out with scientists for a few weeks, even if Santa Claus [...]

      The Man in the Cinder Clouds, Rick Daley's delightful Christmas Tale, is a story within a story within a story. I love how Rick weaves these three plots together, each dependent on the other, nested like Christmas Dolls.In the first, we follow Jason to the North Pole where his father's scientific team is drilling for ice cores (go science! Points for arctic coolness here). Instead they find a magical book that tells the second tale, of one Kris Kringle before he was the chief bringer of gifts. K [...]

      Just in time for the Christmas season, a fabulous re-imagining of the origins of Santa Claus. Kids will love it, and adults will enjoy reading it to them. Even though the language in The Man in the Cinder Clouds is simple enough for young readers, it almost feels like one of those stories that must be read out loud. For this forty-something father, it brought back the magic I remember as a child when I watched the Christmas specials on TV, except this story seemed more "real". I definitely think [...]

      I won this book the man in the cinder clouds written by Rick Daley on free giveaway. With the intention of giving it to my grandson. I decided to read a few pages and found myself enjoying the book. I like the modern way that the author kept the spirt of kris kringle Santa Clause alive in all our hearts. Thank you Rick Daley I will share this book with others. Its a really feel good book for all ages. HOPE THERE WILL BE OTHER BOOKS TO COME

      Did you ever wonder? The Rest of the Story, Santa style! Clever and imaginative telling of how Santa came to be the man he is today. well written and fast paced. I'd give it 4.5 stars if I could!

    6. Red Dwyer

      This is a delightfully different twist on the Santa story. The characters are well developed and easily identifiable. Definitely on my recommended list for everyone who loves Christmas.

      A CLASSIC! I give this a "10" STAR book! Although I can only give it 5, bummer! It does deserve 10!So, you think you know everything there is to know about Santa Claus? Guess again! You don't even know a sliver of the history behind Santa! Did you know Santa is part elf? Yes!This is not 'just' a children's book, it is a book for adults, as well. It's a story within a story. This magical story captivates you as you read it. It pulls you right into the story. First allow me to tell you how we lear [...]

      NOTE TO ANY WHO READ THIS:Let me start this by making a statement: I have never written a review before. Bear with me as I attempt to correctly express my opinions on this novel.Also, I don't like rating systems with numbers or stars at all. It's too subjective what does a 3/5 mean to me, as opposed to what it means to you?Here is how I rate books1) Sell the book back - this means I probably didn't finish the book, or I did, but I really don't want it around any more. This is the worst thing I c [...]

      Please read the blurb to learn the premise. Who could resist a book written by an elf about the origins of Santa Clause? I couldn't, and I'm a little past (okay, way past) the target audience's age. The book was a little like the Princess Bride, a story inside a story. In this case, I'd say nested Christmas presents, and altogether a very nice package with plenty of excitement in the unwrapping. Too bad I had to fly back home before I finished reading to my sister's grandchildren. We went throug [...]

His older brother told him Santa Clause is not real, so he takes along his camera to get proof his brother is wrong. His father and his coworkers are drilling into the ice to study the effects of global warming. They accidently drill a hole right through the middle of a book. Then they get out their picks and sh [...]

      The Man in the Cinder Clouds is a great representation of the selfless giving we associate with the holidays. I fully expected the book to be just another adaptation of the classic Christmas stories for the amusement of children. Despite being written in simple language appropriate for elementary and middle school students, The Man in the Cinder Clouds is a refreshing spin on how Santa Claus came to be. Rick Daley has done a fantastic job of weaving fantasy with realistic concepts every reader c [...]

      I received this book as a first reads selection a while ago. I picked it up for a fill-in after another read that was hard to get into. This book is an easy read and moves along. The setting is a modern day arctic research station and the incidental finding of a book in an ice core drill sample. The gist of the story is the origin of Santa Claus with the subtle undercurrent that the concerns of the Elf High Council are still at issue today. Enjoyed the easy read and the reminder the story provid [...]

    13. Anita Macauslan

      Awful, just awful! An ancient book is found under thousands of years worth of ice; great start for some sort of a lore-based work of fiction, especially given the title. I really had such high hopes But the idea fell flat when it went on to turn into Christian propaganda that isn't even based on actual Christian beliefs. I don't really know what else to say. Yes, it's a children's story, but one that is entirely lacking in creativity.
