Yes this story is all about our favorite beloved figure Santa Claus! We first meet Santa in youth. Abandoned as a newborn baby in the enchanted forest of Burzee, he is adopted by the wood nymph Necile who names him Claus, or "little one." Claus grew up in the forest, making friends with the immortals who dwell there: Knooks, Ryls, Nymphs, Fairies, and Ak, the Master Woodsman (One of the three rulers of the Earth) It is Ak who shows him the world and the the plight of children moves Claus. Claus grows up and moves to the Laughing Valley of Hohaho, where he becomes the legendary Santa Claus and becomes the toymaker and we find him in grave danger as he becomes the figure we know to this day.
