How did Santa come to be? How does he live forever? This wonderful book answers all these questions and more. Santa was a foundling raised by a nymph named Necile who loved him like her own. Throughout his life, Claus is befriended by many immortals who make his life better. When he decides to live among other mortals, Claus finds his true calling.
Growing up, I watched the cartoon by Rankin/Bass based on this short story and it quickly became one of my favorites. I found myself smiling throughout this story and decided that I will be purchasing a copy for my shelves. If you are looking for a quick endearing read about Santa and his origins...this is the book I highly recommend.
