Adapted from the novel by Valentine Davies.

Kris Kringle, forced out of a retirement home for refusing to deny he is Santa Claus, is hired as a seasonal Santa at Macy's in Manhattan. Customers warmly accept him as the very spirit of the season. Susan, the young daughter of Doris Walker, the store's personnel director, likes Kris but does not believe in Santa Claus and tells him that he is merely a Macy's employee. Other children believe that he is the genuine, legendary Real Thing.

When Kris begins recommending that customers shop for the best deal, even if that sends them to competitors, people congratulate the store for its good will and business booms. Mr. Macy is quite happy about that...until some of his employees plot to get rid of him by having him declared insane. Attorney Fred Gailey, Doris' suitor, shows her and Susan the beauty of faith and proves there is a Santa Claus (Kris Kringle) in a court of law.

    " I didn't like this book at all. The movie is much better. This reads like a screenplay, without the emotion of the film. Or maybe the emotion was overdone. Eitherway, I didn't read many pages before I put the book down. I thought it was a waste of time. Tawdry. Trite. Stale. Skip it. "

    " This is a great novella (short novel) for the Christmas season. I've seen the old movie around for years, but had to read the book first. What a treat! The fate of Kris Kringle pulls you in, and the ending is thought provoking and heart warming. "

    " Four and a half stars. Cute story. It was also a much quicker, easier read than I thought it would be. "

    " An adaption of the 1947 film that veers away involving the rap on the head of the Macy "psychologist". That is also where this book falls apart. The George Seaton film version makes far more sense that the version given here, which produced hundreds of witnesses that, in reality, would've altered the results. Otherwise the book is rather faithful to the film and is a fun book to read during the holiday season. "
