An irresistible new collectible hardcover in the successful series of Penguin Christmas Classics- the story of Santa Claus, from boy to jolly old fellow, as imagined by the creator of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.A magical Christmas story by the author of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz, The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus answers the enigmatic Christmas questions- Why does Santa travel via Reindeer? How does he fit through the chimney, and how does he deliver all those toys in one wintry night?First published in 1902, the tale begins as a wood nymph discovers a baby abandoned in a forest. Raised among mythical forest creatures, the child learns to outwit evil as he grows towards adulthood and must discover how to re-enter the human world, which leaves him determined to share gifts and spread love to his fellow man. L. Frank Baum creates a world full of charm and whimsy, delightfully imagined with a cast of memorable and loveable characters.
