This December we bring you our serialized adaptation of The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus, by L. Frank Baum, best known as the author of The Wonderful World of Oz. We rejoin the story with Claus recounting the journey he took in the mortal world with Ak when he was 18 years old. Knowing how lucky he was to have lived a childhood free from worry, Claus determined to help the children of the world. He found himself snowed in for the winter with no way out of the Laughing Valley.
