Another Creature Approaches Pole

Who / What is it?

[Another Creature Approaches Pole]
Santa Greats Ha'Penny's Grand-daughter
With less than a month to go before The Big Night (which is what Elves call Christmas Eve), the North Pole is a very busy place. This year, it's even busier, because a Yeti came with a letter from the grand-daughter of Ha'penny Elf, an elf who left the North Pole years ago. The letter said that she (and her son) were coming for a visit. And now, it seemed that there was another yeti coming through the trees!

Holly Elf pointed out the window at the looming shadow in the trees. "See it, Bernard? I think it's another Abominable Snowman! "

Holly Elf was the official Santa Spotter of the North Pole, the sharpest-eyed elf there was. Bernard Elf joined her at the window of the mail room (where he and the first Yeti had been sorting mail), and peered out at the distant figure. "What the jingle's going on this year?" asked Bernard. He turned to the large creature in the room. "Do you know anything about this?"

The Yeti squinted out the window. "Can't see much of nuthin' out there," he said, and then he sniffed. He sniffed so hard that he sniffed Bernard Elf's hat right off his head! "It don't smell like me," he said. Then peeled Bernard's hat off the tip of his nose. "Here's your cap, Bernie," he said.

"Thanks. I think," said Bernard.

The three went outside, where a crowd was gathering in the main square to watch the approach of the new visitor.

"Ho, ho, ho, Bernard!" said Santa as the three approached. "It doesn't snow but it blizzards! Looks like another letter's coming!"

"I wonder what this one's about," said Toby Elf.

"It could be a letter from a very important movie star," mused Louis Elf.

"Maybe it's from Ha'penny Elf's Granddaughter, saying she can't make it after all," suggested Jiller Elf.

"Maybe it's Ha'penny's Granddaughter herself," said Waldo Elf.

The other elves laughed. "I don't think so, Waldo," said Ali Elf. "Even the biggest Elves aren't all that big, and that seems to be a very big creature coming this way."

"Maybe she just eats well," Waldo replied. "Speaking of eating, I'm hungry. Is there any strawberry-and-mustard pudding left?"

"What about the big bowl of it that you're holding?" asked Toby.

"This is for Ha'penny's Granddaughter. I meant is there any other strawberry-and-mustard pudding left?"

The Yeti sniffed again, and smiled. "That don't smell like no Yeti," he said, and sighed. "That smell preeeettyyyyyy."

"Yep. And it tastes as good as it smells," said Waldo, inhaling deeply.

"Not pudding, silly Waldo!" said the Yeti. She smell good!"

And with that, the creature pushed past the final trees, and walked into the clearing. She--for it was a woman--was large, and pale, and wore a big white fur coat. She also wore a sneer. "Which one of you is Santa?" she demanded. "Speak up!"

"Generally speaking, the one who wears what is commonly known as a 'Santa Suit' would be your first guess," said Santa, stepping forward. "And that would be me. May I help you?"

The woman raised her eyebrow at Santa. "Of course you may," she said, "for I am the Granddaughter of Ha'penny Elf."

Who is this woman? What does she want? Could it be that she wants Strawberry-and-mustard pudding? Keep reading The North Pole Times to find out!

Super Secret Sunday Final

Now the conclusion of the CASE OF THE MISSING CHRISTMAS WISH LIST.


School of Wonders Elves Graduate

Graduation is an elf’s favorite day at school. After all, it is the day we are rewarded for all of our hard schoolwork.



-
Shortly after you go to bed tonight, Santa will leave for his trip around the world! He’ll land on rooftops, pulled by his magical team of reindeer, in every city, every town and every country across the globe to deliver wonderful gifts to wonderful boys and girls.

-
After nearly a month away from the North Pole, Santa Claus had returned at last. But before he got ready for Christmas Eve, he needed to ask Gizmo Elf something:

-
Sparks flew! Gears ground! Widgets fidgeted! Steam billowed up and around Waldo and the Appendapulator! There was a sound like a giant balloon popping, and then all was silent.

-
Waldo Elf was laughing. You fellas sure do know how to tickle my funnybone! he said.

-
Gimo Elf looked up from his work on the Appendapulator to find a group of elves looking at him. This was nothing new to Gizmo recently. Ever since he had accidentally popped Santa away from the North Pole, elves were stopping by, checking on his progress, seeing if he needed anything, encouraging him any way they could to help him bring Santa back.

-
All the elves were working very hard at the North Pole, getting ready for Christmas. But none were working harder than Gizmo. Unfortunately, he seemed to be making no progress in getting Santa back to the North Pole.

-
Santa's still getting popped around by the Appendapulator. Now he's in England!

-
Who would drive the sleigh if Santa is away?

-
What if Santa doesn't make it back to the North Pole in time for Christmas?

-
On one end of the Appendapulator, everything was 'business as usual;' brightly wrapped presents were popping out ot the machine as fast as the elves could carry them away. At the other end, though, things were a little different.

-
Mrs. Claus appeared at the doorway of the workshop. "Santa sent us another email!" she called.

-
Moving a machine like the Appendapulator from one place to another is not an easy job. It's especially difficult when all the reindeer are busy competing at the Reindeer Games.

-
What's normally good news this time of year brings trouble to the North Pole.

-
One second Santa's in California, the next he's in New York!

-
Sometimes things just go from bad to worse. And sometimes they go from worse to downright terrible.

-
S. Alfred Pickles looked around the workshop. His beady eyes gazed longingly at the Appendapulator, the great toymaking machine of the North Pole.

-
Inside the cloud of steam, a shape loomed. It was large. It was round-bellied. It wasn't Santa!

-
The Appendapulator whirred and bonked, clanked and clonked, and then was still. "I just don't understand it, Waldo," said Gizmo Elf, inventor of the giant toymaking machine. "It looks like everything is working fine, but things aren't

-
"We've got another email from Santa!" Jiller Elf called out.

-
Gizmo thinks the flanged prestidigimuggin is the problem. He's probably wrong.

-
The North Pole hears from Santa; tells everyone he's safe.

-
On a typical early December day at the North Pole, elves are very busy. They sort out Christmas lists, build toys, and generally get ready for the Big Night, Christmas Eve, when Santa Claus delivers gifts to all the children of the world. This, however, was not a typical early December day at the North Pole. Santa Claus was popped out of the North Pole during a demonstration of the modified Appendapulator, the main toy-making machine of the North Pole.

-
During a demonstration of an upgraded Appendapulator, the great toy-making machine of the North Pole, Santa Claus suddenly disappeared. Witnesses report that there was some sort of popping sound, and Santa was no longer there!

-
During a demonstration of the Appendapulator, Santa Claus was popped away from the North Pole.

-
The Appendapulator, the great toy-making machine of the North Pole, has just been modified by Gizmo Elf, Santa's Chief Inventing Elf, and the Appendapulator's creator.

-
When we arrived at Gizmo Elf's workshop, we were greeted by a closed door and the sounds of conks, bonks, boiks and boops from inside. Santa knocked on the door, and the noises stopped for a moment, followed by the sound of someone whispering. Suddenly there was a loud crash, a tinkle, a honk, and then the door opened. A small head with enormous glasses poked out.

-
Gizmo and Waldo are working on the Apendapulator, and everyone else waits to see what they're doing!

-
Santa Claus toured the grounds of the North Pole yesterday, making sure all is ready for the big rush to Christmas. He was accompanied by Mrs. Claus and Bernard Elf.

-
Will there be changes in the way the Elves get ready for Christmas?

-
Santa has a message for all the kids out there!

-
Get ready for another fun-filled adventure at Santa’s Village at the North Pole.

-
It's that time of year again. Readers of the North Pole Times are in for some special treats this year.
