The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus
« Reply #1 on: Dec:02:2019 »

Author: L. Frank Baum / Year: 1856-1919  / Genre: Christmas

A children’s book, published in 1902, two years after Baum’s success with The Wizard of Oz.
Among many stories about the life of Santa Claus, this one seems to be the most delightful.
Santa Claus, as a baby is found in the Forest of Burzee by Ak, the Master Woodsman of the World, and placed in the care of the lioness Shiegra.

The Wood Nymph, Necile, breaks the law of the forest and takes the baby because she desires to raise a child of her own as mortals do, convincing Ak that since he made the law, he can allow an exception, and agrees to have both Necile and Shiegra care for the baby.
As years passed by, Claus’ fame spread far and wide, and he became recognized as a saint, earning the title “Santa”.
Santa Claus “brought toys to the children because they were little and helpless, and because he loved them. He knew that the best of children were sometimes naughty, and that the naughty ones were often good. It is the way with children, the world over, and he would not have changed their natures had he possessed the power to do so.”
