L. Frank Baum's wild imagination takes up
the Santa Claus story, reinventing it with a
new origin myth in line with the Oz fanasies
for which Baum is best known.
From his humble beginnings as the only human
child in an enchanted forest to his ultimate
destiny as the immortal being who delivers
toys to the children of the world, Santa Claus
finds a sympathetic storyteller in Baum.
The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus is a
must read for anyone who wants to recapture
the childlike essence of Christmas!
This edition also includes Baum's other Santa
Claus story, "A Kidnapped Santa Claus," a sequel
to The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus.
