Everyone knows about Santa Claus of course and his wonderful trip around the world on the night before Christmas. But what about his early life? Where was he born? What was he like as a youth? How did he come to be such a wonderful toymaker? When did he start using the Reindeer? And, most importantly, how has he been able to live so very long?

In this holiday classic from the author of The Wonderful Wizard of OZ, all these questions are answered. We find out about Santa's life from his birth and childhood days all the way up to the time he began his magical trips on Christmas Eve. Baum paints a picture of a wonderful place called Burzee, where Santa grew up, that has all the charm and fantasy of Oz. This is a must-listen for all ages.

    " Published in 1902, this secular novella by the author of the Oz books creates a mythology behind Santa Claus through a society of fairies and nymphs. It tells of Claus' birth, how he came to invent toys, how he got his ten (yes, ten) reindeer, and various other Christmas traditions. The author even reluctantly shares an epic battle between the forces of good and evil--okay, maybe not epic, but.... It's a sweet story, with good characterization, and Baum does well at creating a world, though toward the end it starts to feel like he is trying to predict every question. Considering he was known to tell stories to groups of children orally and answer their questions as he did, I wouldn't be surprised if that factored in to his writing in this book. "

    " Fun, quick read. Filled with folklore and mythical creatures, I love how this book tells the story of how Santa Claus came to be. "

    " Cute twist on the stories of how Santa Clause came to be complete with explainations of why he delivers toys to children only at when it's dark, on Christmas eve, how he is able to get into houses that do not have a chimney, and how he has lived so long! For those that didn't notice, this book was written by the author who wrote "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz". "

    " Write a review... have never read this, you have missed one of the best fantasy mythological adventure books of all-time. Although, Mr. Baum's Oz series gets more attention, this tale is fantastic. Santa Claus' life is told as a myth. "
