Alex Robinson posts page 1 of his A KIDNAPPED SANTA CLAUS:

Page one of A Kidnapped Santa Claus, depicting Santa’s headquaters. I probably commented on this before but one thing I find interesting about the original Baum story is that it features different elements from what we think of as the Santa Claus “canon.” For instance, Baum has Mr. Claus living in The Laughing Valley, as opposed to the North Pole. My guess is that the Santa legend was still evolving at that point and it’s one of a few elements which seems strange to modern eyes.
