The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus


The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus, by L. Frank Baum, was first published in 1902. Written by the author of the Wizard of Oz series, Baum spins the fantastical tale of how Santa Claus was born, raised, and became the magical toy giver to children of all ages. Raised by the immortal would nymph Necile and lioness Shiegra, Claus (which means "little one") learned all he knew from Fairies, Wood Nymphs, Gnomes, Knooks, Ryls, Sleep Fays, Elves, and Imps among other magical creatures. Follow the incredible adventures as Claus grows up and discover the secrets of how the toys are made, where the reindeer came from, why Christmas Eve was "the night", and how Claus came to be known as "Santa". Great Christmas time reading for little ones!

This edition includes the sequel A Kidnapped Santa Claus - also written by L. Frank Baum and published in 1904.
