A Kidnapped Santa Claus

A Kidnapped Santa Claus

Author: L. Frank Baum Narrator: Katie Haigh Release Date: 01/01/2020

Prince Darling : An aged king who is a widower lavishes indulgence on his only son, who the people consequently call 'Prince Darling.' He fears he will die before the child is of age and confesses his concern to his friend, the Fairy of Truth. The fairy promises to grant the boy a boon such as beauty, wealth or military success, but the king asks only that the fairy make the boy a good person. The fairy says she cannot change the boy's character, but she can give him advice and correct him when he errs...The imagery in fairy tales (such as personified animals, adults represented as giants and allegorical magic vegetables) allows the child to explore their fears in remote and symbolic terms. Fairy tales allow the reader to explore each virtue and path of action through the different characters' fates. The child decides their own personal stance after deliberating each consequence. Fairy tales provide answers to what the world is really like and the child's place within it.

A Kidnapped Santa Claus (Christmas Books)

A Kidnapped Santa Claus (Christmas Books)

Author: L. Frank Baum Narrator: Max Bollinger Release Date: 01/12/2015

Santa Claus lives in the Laughing Valley, where stands the big, rambling castle in which his toys are manufactured. His workmen, selected from the ryls, knooks, pixies and fairies, live with him, and every one is as busy as can be from one year's end to another. One would think that our good old Santa Claus, who devotes his days to making children happy, would have no enemies on all the earth; and, as a matter of fact, for a long period of time he encountered nothing but love wherever he might go. Read in English, unabridged.

Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz

Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz

Author: L. Frank Baum Narrator: Phil Chenevert Release Date: 01/01/2017

'There is no doubt they intend to kill us as dead as possible in a short time,' said the Wizard. 'As dead as poss'ble would be pretty dead, wouldn't it?' asked Dorothy.' During an earthquake in California Dorothy and her friends are swallowed up by cracks in the earth and find themselves in a whole new land – the Land of Mangaboos. The Mangaboos are a vegetable people, and they accuse Dorothy and her friends of causing the earthquake and sentence them to death. The 1939 movie, `The Wizard of Oz‘ starring Judy Garland, perfectly told the story of a little girl‘s first adventure, but the story of Oz and Dorothy far from ended then. With his trademark inventions on display, author L. Frank Baum delivers another imaginative and delightful book in the Oz series, though many will agree that this fourth one is darker and more troubling than its predecessors.
