A Kidnapped Santa Claus is a Christmas-themed short story written by L. Frank Baum who is most famous for creating The Wizard Of Oz. It has been called "one of Baum's most beautiful stories" and first published in the December 1904 edition of The Delineator women's magazine. Santa Claus has been kidnapped by five pagan Daemons. Four of the five, the Daemons of Selfishness, Envy, Hatred, and Malice, most certainly are bad, but the fifth, the Daemon of Repentance, is a more ambiguous figure. The Daemons of the Caves resent Santa Claus because children under the influence of his gifts rarely visit their caves. the Daemons instead kidnap Santa Claus; they lasso him as he is riding in his sleigh on Christmas Eve, and bind him in their caverns. The queen of the Fairies in the Forest of Burzee summons an army of magical creatures to rescue the missing hero. We hope you enjoy this perennial favourite and might also wish to sample; ‘The Magic Of Oz’, ‘Dorothy & The Wizard Of Oz’, ‘Glinda Of Oz’ and ‘Ozma Of Oz’ and other in our L Frank Baum series including his other short stories.
