KlappentextA baby is found by wood nymphs in the forest of Burzee. They raise him as their own and give him the name Neclaus. When he grows up, Neclaus has to leave the forest, so he makes a home for himself in the laughing valley of Hohaha, where he lives amongst humans for the first time. He discovers there that many children are very poor and neglected, so to cheer them up he whittles wooden toys to give to them as gifts.

VorwortA wonderfully inventive retelling of the story of Father Christmas.

Autor

Lyman Frank Baum was born in 1856 in Chittenango in the state of New York. Educated mostly at home due to ill health, he was encouraged by his wealthy father to pursue his early interests in journalism and playwriting. He started his first magazine aged fifteen, had his own theatre at twenty-four and worked for many newspapers and periodicals before turning to children's fiction. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, published in 1900, was his third bestselling book in as many years, and launched the hugely successful series of ?Oz? titles. Baum continued writing for the rest of his life and died in 1919 with over one hundred books to his name.
