The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus reveals the story behind the man we all know. In this children's fantasy story, baby Claus is discovered in a forest by a supreme immortal and placed in the care of a lioness and later a wood nymph. Claus is kind towards children and spends his time making toys for them, but not everyone is pleased with his activities and will do all they can to make it stop. The story by L. Frank Baum, known to most as the author of ”The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,” has been turned into a graphic novel and the 1994 anime television mini-series Shounen Santa no daibôken.
