      Holy crap on a Christmas Cookie! I wanted to do Christmas in July. So I'm going to read 4 of these books that are short and have beautiful covers. I will add my little Christmas thing another time as I'm not getting on the computer as much as I told you all 🎅Oh My Goodness! What a sweet little book! I loved that Santa was adopted by immortals and the story of how he became Santa. I like this story best as his origin story. The fantastical imagery in the mind of all the creatures. Such joy [...]

    2. Candi says:

      This was a delightful tale of the origins of Santa Claus in a world full of magical, immortal creatures. This was not your traditional Santa at the North Pole story, nor did I expect it to be, coming from such an imaginative writer as L. Frank Baum. This story had the wondrous feel of a fairy tale, with Santa being raised by a wood nymph and protected by the Master Woodsman of the World. Baum illuminates the beauty of nature in his descriptions of Santa's surroundings, and reaffirms Santa's love [...]

      We will not Banish Magic from the World, not while Jolly Old Saint Nicholas keeps the Spirit of Christmas Alive in our Hearts! The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus (1902) by L. Frank Baum is the classic biography of the legendary man in the red suit ~ Santa Claus. Child of the ForestAs with most biographies, I enjoyed the chapters on his childhood the best. Santa’s story begins in an enchanted forest inhabited by fairies, knooks, ryls, and nymphs ~ immortal and changeless beings who have peo [...]

      in his wonderful Oz series, Baum usually does a good job at keeping his more precious & cutesy-poo tendencies in check. his bracingly no-nonsense little heroines and often delightfully bizarre imagination help to keep things treacle-free. unfortunately no such barriers have been put in place for this story of the early life of Santa Claus; the result is much strained mawkishness and, egads, baby talk. sugar overload! however I did enjoy the entirely pagan origins of Jolly Saint Nick - a foun [...]

    5. ❀Julie says:

      I really enjoyed this book as it took me back to my childhood with memories of how I truly believed. This is a different but very imaginative and old-fashioned story about the origins of Santa Claus. It was an uplifting, quick read, and it answered all the unrelenting questions my 7-year-old has been asking me this holiday season. Next time I will read the illustrated version to my kids.

    6. Petra says:

      I finished and enjoyed this story quite a bit. It's sweet and a wonderful story to read to kids in December. It's warm, touching, brings the love & joy of Santa into the mind. It's told as a history, that each child would be able to envision being true. True, a few details are changed but, in essence, this is the story of Santa Claus and one to delight young (and old) hearts.

    7. J.P. says:

      A beautiful book. Will definitely make you feel the warmth and love and giving-nature of Santa Claus in your heart this time of year. (Also discovered that the soundtrack to the movie Amelie is the perfect soundtrack to this book.)If you have particular books that you read every Christmas - A Christmas Carol, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, etc. - add this to the list.

    8. Mischenko says:

      Wonderful!Perfect read for this time of year. Written beautifully and great for reading out loud to children."With a ho, ho, ho! And a ha, ha, ha!And a ho, ho, ha, ha, hee!Now away we go O'er the frozen snow,As merry as we can be!There are many joys In our load of toys, As many a child will know; We'll scatter them wide On our wild night ride O'er the crisp and sparkling snow!"So glad to have finally read it

    9. Lesle says:

      Baum wrote this Fairy Tale two years after Oz, 1902.A beautiful tale of Claus and how he grew up in the forest of Oz to became Santa Claus. Different parts of the story are quite delightful Necile, the whittling of the first toy cat to using clay to make dolls all gifts that he loved giving to children in need. Did not care for the dark Awgwas, jealous beings. The meaning behind all things Christmas, Stockings, Tree and Christmas eve. I loved Flossie and Glossie in helping Claus use the fireplac [...]

    10. The Lit Bitch says:

      This short, quick read is perfect for children and adults alike.Baum chronicles Santa’s life from his childhood in an enchanted forest—the same forest that is the source of all magic in the land of Oz—to his destiny of sharing gifts and spreading love to all he meets.One of the things that I love about Penguin edition books, is their ability to design interactive, intriguing editions for readers. This is just the kind of book I can see families sitting down after Christmas Eve dinner to re [...]

      What an adorable little book. I picked it up now because Christmas! and also because I needed something a bit fluffy for a few moments. It fit the bill perfectly as I was able to plow through it in just over an hour. Anyone familiar with Baum's more popular Oz series knows that his writing does not require a lot of focus, yet his stories are charming enough that a reader can't help but give it the attention it deserves.This book covers the life of Santa Claus - when he was found by wood nymphs, [...]

    13. Matt says:

      This is really a fine children's book. Like any good children's literature, it is equally enjoyable for adults. Placing Santa Claus firmly in the pagan world of fairies, woodland spirits, and other such folktale powers, Baum reminds us that Santa - despite the relation to the Christian St. Nick - is clearly an embodyment of the pagan celebration of joy, light, and life that is and has always been a massive part of Christmas.The book presents a very likeble Santa Claus and is highly original. Mos [...]

    14. David says:

      Not at all what I was expecting, but then, I have just read several Oz books, so I should have known better than to think anything created by their author would conform to expectations. I found this book very charming, delighted that it situates Claus in a pagan world, eventually earning the honorific "Santa" from the parents of happy children. But he starts out as an ordinary mortal, and the other immortals must vote unanimously to give him the immortality he currently enjoys. Like the Oz books [...]

    15. Katherine says:

      ”’In all this world there is nothing more beautiful as a happy child,’ says good old Santa Claus; and if he had his way the children would all be beautiful, for all would be happy.’”3.5 out of 5 starsSynopsis: For any parents who are panicking because their wee little munchkins are starting to raise questions, L. Frank Baum did you a great service.Biblio-BabbleThere’s An App for This and An Answer for That: The plot of the book is relatively simple to figure out because it’s exactl [...]

    16. Peter McQueeny says:

      I look forward to reading this to my children one day. As with all Baum's work, it's charming and imaginative. Anyone who has it in them to dislike this story must have a crumpled little raisin where their heart should be.That said, a book like this could never be written today. The style is the antithesis of today's fast-paced cinematic style. It's delivered in a story-time fashion, like classic fairy tales. Readers with 21st-century attention spans may find it difficult for that reason. But if [...]

    17. Alexandra Nunney says:

      Such a beautiful story, and the edition that I managed to get my hands on is just gorgeous.The writing was brilliant and flowed like a dream. I loved this book so very much.Anybody who is looking for a lovely little festive story should definitely pick this up.

    18. Jen Ƹ̴Ӂ̴Ʒ says:

      A magical story of which Baum uses various fables about Santa Claus to create his life story. Definitely on par with The Wizard of Oz books.

    19. Jessika says:

      A whimsical children's story perfect for reading aloud this time of year! I adore all things Christmas. Chances are, if a book has Christmas in the title, on the cover, or in the synopsis, I will read it. And because I'm a huge sap for Christmas, I enjoy just about every Christmas book I read. This was a classic that I had first heard of floating around the internet, and I'm glad I've finally taken this holiday season to read it. As a kid, some of my favorite Christmas stories were those that "e [...]

    20. Althesia says:

      Waaaahh aku pun baru tahu kalau Mr. Baum menulis kisah tentang Santa yang ternyata punya keunikan seperti yang digambarkannya pada buku yang cukup singkat ini. Pembaca akan mengenal Claus sebagai manusia biasa yang berpikir dan memulai misinya dengan cara-cara sederhana, dengan keterbatasannya, dengan halangan yang muncul dari pihak-pihak yang tidak menyukainya, bahkan tantangan yang digariskan usia untuknya. Namun sebagai manusia biasa pun kita akan melihat Claus berusaha dan betapa senyuman an [...]

    21. Allison ༻hikes the bookwoods༺ says:

      A whimsical tale on the origins of Santa Claus. Unlike Clement C. Moore’s The Night Before Christmas, L. Frank Baum’s imaginings have not made it into the Christmas canon. I think his overwhelming success with Oz more than makes up for it though!

    22. Jesse says:

      It has become a little holiday tradition of mine to read some kind of holiday-themed book during the week of Christmas; this ended up being this year's selection after discovering its existence the day before before boarding a plane for a family visit. And it proved to be a lovely selection, serving its intended purpose perfectly. No, it's not at all on the same level of quality as the best Oz books and can certainly be accused of constantly slipping into the saccharine, but I find the warm glow [...]

    23. Joey Woolfardis says:

      The writing is decent but the imagination lacks a certain truthful endeavour to it. This is not a history of Father Christmas that should be put about.Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Pinterest | Shop | Etsy

    24. Mackey St says:

      I adore Baum's books and glorious imagination so it was no surprise that I also thoroughly enjoyed The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus. With this story Baum covers and explains nearly all of the myths and legends surrounding "Santa Claus," from his red suit, to flying reindeer, his name, his home and even his immortality. It is fantastical in origin and immortal in spirit, a treasure for all ages to read over and over again every holiday season.

    25. Dana says:

      This was such a lovely, sweet little book on the life of Santa Claus. It's almost like The Chronicles of Narnia meets Christmas. Baum wrote a very simple book that puts you in the spirit of the holiday.

    26. Melanti says:

      Not a bad book but a little too cute and sentimental for my current moodBut Christmas is just a couple days away at this point so it was now or never.

    27. Alina Maria Ciobanu says:

      A beautiful original story that provides an alternative explanation of how Santa Claus became Santa Claus. :-)

    28. Pamela says:

      The story, in and of itself is delightful! When my children were young, I owned a tattered copy. A timeless, ultra-imaginative classic, to be sure; anything by L. Frank Baum usually is. And it was one of our Christmas read aloud favorites.However . . . nostalgic memories aside, my old dated version cannot compare to this one. Sure, the story is the same: set in the land of Burzee, featuring The great Woodland Father Ak and other playful immortals such as: Sprites, Nymphs, Knooks, Fairies. The di [...]

    29. Charly says:

      This is an attempt by L. Frank Baum to place the legend of Santa Claus within the realm of the magical inhabitants of Earth while finding ways to explain the "mysteries" of the Santa legend. It is a very clever approach and works well. It for it's time seems to have been quite advanced. Having said that I think I prefer The Autobiography of Santa Claus. Both are good reads for true believers.

    30. Andrew Nguyen says:

      Answered many questions I had about Santa lore including the following:- Was Santa always magical? Or was he born that way?- If Santa is immortal, why does he have the appearance of an old man?- Who are Santa’s parents? Wonderfully illustrated and told like a series of fairy tales, it’s a great Christmas-time read.
