Pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1902, due anni dopo Il mago di Oz, Vita e avventure di Babbo Natale racconta la storia del personaggio più amato di tutti i tempi: dalla sua infanzia nella foresta incantata di Burzee al primo giocattolo costruito, al desiderio di dedicare la propria vita a rendere felici gli altri con i propri doni. Tra animali di legno e creature fatate, veniamo guidati alla scoperta di molti segreti del Natale: l’origine dell’uso dell’albero e della calza, il motivo per cui Babbo Natale scende dal caminetto, come sia possibile che, in una sola notte, consegni da solo i regali a tutti i bambini del mondo. Un racconto che sa far rivivere l’incanto, il calore e la fantasia che hanno fatto del capolavoro di Oz un classico della letteratura americana.

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 Forest As with most b Leggi tutto
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,
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 thi Leggi tutto
ME HA ENCANTADO. No sé por qué esta historia de Baum es tan poco conocida cuando sin duda llega al nivel del mundo de Oz. En este libro el autor nos cuenta su versión de cómo nació Santa Claus y como se fue convirtiendo en la figura que hoy conocemos y que se pasa la noche de Nochebuena repartiendo Leggi tutto
Although I included this book on my children's shelf, it is actually written, I think, to be read aloud to children as the language would be a bit too difficult for a child to read. This is a stunning work by the mind that also gave us Oz. This is not the usual story about Santa Claus, the North Pole Leggi tutto
L. Frank Baum 's take on Santa Claus is totally different from the typical stories I grew up knowing about Santa Claus. Interesting story set in a completely different environment than the North Pole. Staged in the forest with interesting characters who all have their own magical/mystical powers. Whil Leggi tutto
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 bee Leggi tutto
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!

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 Christ Leggi tutto
