Publisher's Summary

Very much in the style of L. Frank Baum (The Wizard of Oz), this story shows that Harry Potter was not the first remarkably popular world hit in junior literature. A Kidnapped Santa Claus, a fun fantasy, is actually a continuation of the first novel Baum wrote in this vein, The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus. In it, he charts his hero's life from a foundling in the forest to becoming all children's favorite uncle. This story, though, has the advantage of brevity.

Perhaps Not a Classic, But a Good Listen

Where does A Kidnapped Santa Claus (from the Naxos Audiobook 'A Family Christmas') rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Along with Christmas music and wrapping paper, the Chrismas season should have a read or "listen" of a few seasonal selections. The book is very imaginative.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This is a short story originally published in a magazine in 1904. It takes less than half an hour to hear it all.
