The Boy Who Lived in Pudding Lane

# UP0562
Currently Unavailable

Once upon a time, in the kingdom of Old King Cole, there lived a father and a mother, and a fat little boy who was always dressed in a bright red suit. The father, whose name was Mr. Claus, was a baker, and he lived in Pudding Lane, between the butcher and the candle-stick maker.

So begins this enchanting “origin story” of Santa Claus, penned in 1921 by journalist Sarah Addington for The Ladies' Home Journal “to shed light, then, on the life of a popular idol, shamefully neglected by historians.” A bighearted, jovial boy, young Santa is forever giving away his father's delicious baked goods, delighting in the joy it gives the children of his village. But when he realizes his little brothers have no toys to play with, the jolly young elf sets out to craft a special surprise for the upcoming Holy Day…and a legend is born. Reissued for a new generation of young readers, this heartwarming fairy tale is destined to become a staple of your family's annual Christmas traditions. (KG)
