Summary, etc.:
"This is a republication of the 1922 class Christmas story of Santa Claus as a young boy growing up with his family on a street called Pudding Lane. The story first appeared in Ladies Home Journal magazine for Christmas of 1921 and then was published in the following year in hardcover. The illustrations for both the magazine and hardcover edition were by Gertrude A. Kay who rendered the story along the lines of the popular art nouveau movement of the times. The story is a magical tale of Santa that is elaborated by references to other fictional characters including Mother Goose, who happens to be Santa's maternal grandmother. The story explains how Santa's wonderful benevolence grew from his early childhood days, with his generosity of spirit and kindness towards others." -- Worldcat.
