Publisher's Summary

The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus is a 1902 children's book, written by L. Frank Baum, author of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. The book is the origin story of Santa Claus and persuasively explains how he began to deliver toys to children, why he arrives via chimney at night, and how he came to travel by a sleigh pulled by reindeer. Santa Claus appears in several other of L. Frank Baum's Oz stories, including "A Kidnapped Santa Claus", Queer Visitors from the Marvelous Land of Oz, and The Road to Oz.

Classic story, great narrator.

I think the narrator was perfect for this beloved story. :) I listened while wrapping presents, and it kept me going.

A delightful and original story of Santa Claus

This is a very original and wonderful telling of how Santa Claus came to be. The author, L. Frank Baum, legendary creator of the land of Oz, is in high form here. The characters and creatures are wonderfully imaginative.

This book should be considered mandatory reading for all children. whether they celebrate Christmas or not. It is a tale of good nature, good intentions, and the love of childhood. I cannot recommend it more strongly.
