Every child knows that Santa Claus comes but once a year, bringing presents and joy to the whole world. But who is Santa? Where do his reindeer come from? Who invented the Christmas tree and Christmas stockings? And how does he make sure every child gets a gift? L. Frank Baum gives us his own version of Santa's story here, from being found as a babe in the woods to his immortal life as Santa Claus. We meet the Master Woodsman, Necile the Wood-Nymph, and little Mayrie, who just wants a toy of her own, all illustrated with John Shelley's droll black and white cartoons.
