    1. I discovered this holiday gem while looking for other books written by L.Frank Baum, besides that well-known classic, of course. It is a fun, magical book. I really enjoyed how each aspect of Santa's giving of gifts was explained -- presents under the tree, stockings hung by the fireplace, how does Santa bring presents when there is no chimney? Little believers are sure to be charmed by this little treasure.

    2. Enjoyed the history of Santa as told by Baum. Especially liked his explanation of why Christmas eve deliveries and the origin of stockings and trees. Kidnap story was short and sweet.

    3. "'Let him be called Claus,' answered Necile, 'for that means 'a little one.'''Rather let him be called Neclaus' returned the Queen, 'for that will mean 'Necile's little one.'' (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.)""'You must pray to the good Santa Claus for forgivenes [...]

    4. An odd book, mainly because it seems to have been written for children yet doesn't seem like it would appeal to them. It's more of a meditative, Tolkien-esque version of Santa's life, having him raised by a nymph in a fairy forest. When he finally discovers humanity, he decides to care for children, which is certainly a nice sentiment but seems rather an adult way of looking at it, instead of a children's story. Also, the book has remarkably little to do with Christmas. The only mention is a dea [...]

    5. This was a very interesting lecture about how the fiction literature builded on myths and legends, adding and mixing elemets from other cultures. I am not quite an expert in this domain, but I believe that most of the mythical elements borrowed are from Irish folklore, or a similar keltic culture.My copy of this book is in romanian.

    6. This book is so magical. It's the story about how Santa first started out in life. It is a fun Christmas book to read!

    7. Santa explained. Santa explained. L. Frank Baum, master of words, never fails to enlighten, entertain, and impress. I recommend this book to all non-believers.

    8. I have enjoyed this book practically every year since I was young when my parents would read it to me. Fun to have a Jewish take (Baum is Jewish as I recall) on a nominally Christian character.
