The Curious Adventures of Santa's Wayward Elves
Here’s the story of the elves’ adventure. Every Christmas Eve Santa’s job is to deliver presents to the good little boys and girls. Up at Santa’s North Pole shop, two of his worker bees -- Zoppo and Sheenette -- are curious about what Santa’s up to out there on his long rides. So they decide to find out for themselves.
On Christmas Eve, as Santa is getting his sleigh and reindeer ready, they sneak aboard and off they go. They ride along with curiosity unquenched, until finally they decide the time has come. When Santa comes up from his visit inside this special house, they sneak away and slide down the chimney themselves. Once there, they are amazed and often bewildered at what goes on inside a real house, with real creatures they’ve never seen before.
What will happen to them? Will they even survive? Does Santa even know they snuck away? Will they be able to get back to their North Pole shop and elf cronies? This is the story about their curious adventures.
