Baum's Santa lives in a valley adjacent to Oz and interacts with fairy folk like those in his more famous body of work. Like the Oz stories, Baum's writing here is characterized by unadulterated joy and optimism, without condescending to his audience. Indeed, both adults and children can enjoy his writing. The remainder of the book was a long series of discussion questions, none of them directed at this book specifically. The discussion questions could easily be a collection of questions for English teachers to use for any literature. This is an amazing book that brings you into the world of Santa Claus. If you still believe or ever believed, this is a great book for you, it may even restore your faith in him. Fantasy, fun, classic and intelligent, I have always loved this story. Read it, you will see. There is even the free version, so there are no excuses.

He had no idea that millions of toiling, striving human creatures existed. And he was happy and content. Some people have spelled this name Nicklaus and others Nicolas, which is the reason that Santa Claus is still known in some lands as St. Nicolas. But, of course, Neclaus is his right name, and Claus the nickname given him by his adopted mother, the fair nymph Necile.

Taking the beloved symbol of merriment out of his conventional trappings and into the world of imaginative folklore, Baum gives Santa Claus an exciting life that evokes all the charm, warmth, and fantasy that made his Oz stories American classics.
