Publisher's Summary

"A Kidnapped Santa Claus" is a short story by L. Frank Baum, author of the Oz stories. In it, The Daemons of the caves, resentful of Santa Claus, who rebuffs their attempts to subvert him by temptation, capture him in his sleigh on Christmas Eve and imprison him in their caves. Santa's helpers: a fairy, pixie, knook, and ryl, finish his deliveries with a few comical mishaps. Assembling a magical army of good beings, the queen of the fairies leads an attempt to rescue Santa Claus from the clutches of the evil Daemons.
Published in 1904, the story has a somewhat darker tone than its predecessor, The Life and Adventures of Santa Clause.

Strange tail of santa-claus

I found the narration kind of dry and boring. this is a strange story of Santa Claus and some demons in a cave and Santa's Little Helpers the elves. I found the narrator tedious to listen to and I'm glad that this is a short book.
