In a world filled with immortals and mortals, the forest of Burzee received an abandoned infant which is found by the nymphs. And Necile who wishes, even though it is against the law, to spare the child and raise it as her own. Ak, the Master Woodsman reluctantly allows Necile to take in the baby and name him Claus. As he grows older Claus befriends the creatures of the forest and Ak shows him the children of the world who he has sympathy for. When Claus reaches adulthood he leaves the forest of Burzee and travels to the country called the Laughing Valley where he builds his own home, receives a cat called Blinkie, who he makes a wooden version of and gives it to a boy lost in a snow storm. The Ryls give him paint that they use to colour flowers so Claus can paint his toys. He later makes a variaty of wooden animals who he decides to give to the children who are either rich or poor including Bessie Blithesome and Mayrie. An evil army called the Awgwas realise the toys are making the children less naughty so they attempt to stop that by kidnapping Claus and dumping him in the jungle, trap him in a blocked cave and steal the toys from the children forcing Claus to seek shelter. The immortals rage war against the Awgwas so Claus can still make the children gifts.
