Product Description
"A Kidnapped Santa Claus" is a short story written by L. Frank Baum and published in December 1904. The characters are demons of hatred, selfishness, envy, malice, and repentance. The demons did not like Santa because he made children happy. There was no need for them to visit the demons’ caves. On Christmas Eve, the demons capture Santa and take him into the mountains. They are sure that the children will receive no toys for Christmas. However, their plot doesn’t work out quite the way they intended.
