Can Mrs. Claus Save Christmas?

Written by Ruth Ann Pattee

It is two weeks until Christmas and exhausted Santa wistfully dreams of a vacation in Hawaii. But even with the elves working hard and Mrs. Claus checking the list of good girls and boys, he just doesn’t have the time. Meanwhile, villain Gil Bates, a multi-millionaire video game manufacturer, longs for the one thing he does not have — the love of children. Bates knows that Santa is loved by all kids, so he decides to kidnap Santa and force him to reveal the secret of his magic. Bates successfully lures Santa to Hawaii, supposedly to check out a new video game, but he underestimates the determination of Mrs. Claus and her helpful elves, Shimmer and Twinkle. Alas! Even when Santa does reveal the secret behind his magic, Bates’s meanness proves to be his own undoing! Driving the sleigh drives him crazy, and he is taken away to jail by his own employees. Santa is free and with the help of Mrs. Claus and the elves, he can work his holiday magic once again. (Spoiler alert!) Christmas is saved!
