Waldo, Mikee, and Gizmo needed to cross the lake and find a meanie living in the castle. As you remember, dear readers, the snow fairy knew nothing about the mysterious elf girl, but she was sure the meanie had caused the great mess at the North Pole.
Now, the elves needed to find the boat that would take them over the Lake of Unfrozen Waters. They set off through the darkness, snow, and ice.
After a time, they reached the lake, but there was one problem – there was no boat! The elves looked all around but saw nothing but piles of snow.
Luckily, Waldo remembered his trusty Sherlock Junior kit. He took the magnifying glass and started searching for the boat. Waldo went left and right over the snowdrifts leaving his tiny footsteps in the snow. At times, it seemed he was walking in circles.
“There’s nothing here,” Waldo claimed, then tripped and fell face-first into the snow. Believe it or not – Waldo found the boat covered in snow!
Our dear Waldo tripped over the rope holding the boat!
The elves swept the snow from the boat and began the journey across the lake.
On their way, a great whale surfaced next to them. “You ain’t no fish,” the whale blurted. “Whatcha doin’ in my lake?"
After hearing about their quest, the whale warned the elves, “Gotta be careful on this one; I’ve heard talk on that castle. Everyone thinkin’ it be haunted. I’d be turnin’ back if I were you.”
The elves looked towards the dark castle ahead. It seemed scary and spooky, but they had to move on. They had to save Christmas.
“There’s no such thing as a haunted castle,” Mikee muttered, trying to encourage them.
As the elves continued, a seal splashed up alongside them.
“Do you guys have a ball?” the seal inquired.
“Excuse me?” responded Gizmo.
“A ball. You know, round and spherical. I like to bounce a ball on my nose.”
“I’m afraid not.” replied Gizmo. “But what do you know about the castle and the one who lives there?”
“Be aware. I’ve heard he’s a boogeyman who stands six-foot-three with sharp teeth and giant claws!” and then splashed away. The seal then popped back up in the distance and said: “Beware! I’d turn back if I were you.” and disappeared back into the lake.
The elves seemed terrified hearing this.
“There’s no such thing as a boogeyman,” Gizmo stated as he tried to calm them down, but didn’t seem to believe his own words.
The elves moved on no matter how frightened they were. They left the boat and traveled up to the giant castle where they found a gate. Oh no!
The frozen gate stretched up to the sky. It was so tall they couldn’t even see the lock. The elves had no way to reach it, much less unlock it. Beyond the gate lies the dark wretched castle surrounded by an undeniable presence. Pierces of lightning split the sky as rumbles of thunder shook the earth.
What do you think? Will the elves find the way to open the gate? Is the castle haunted?
Come back TOMORROW and find the latest news. Right here, on the North Pole Times!
Before he left, Santa gave Boone a tiny little box wrapped with a red ribbon. The box was small enough to fit into the palm of his hand… almost like a jewelry box.
Please, Santa, can I stay here at the North Pole and be part of YOUR family? Please?
The elves were about to leave the workshop when they heard a voice.
The Presentator is a present-switching machine Gizmo invented long ago when the elves faced a similar problem with Christmas presents.
There was no time to start from the beginning as Christmas is so soon!
Waldo looked at Boone and said, “What...? What happened to you?” Gizmo, Mikee, and Randolph turned around, in shock.
Waldo, Mikee, and Gizmo were so overwhelmed with joy that they didn’t notice what was happening right next to them.
Boone stood in front of the central computer that controls everything in Santa’s village. It was out of order.
Randolph took off and flew across the sky through snow and blizzard. He followed Boone’s instructions, which...
The overweight reindeer swooped out of the sky and plopped back onto the roof.
The chubby fella with one horn took off and flew so high that the elves could no longer see him.
It’s not too late! You CAN help save Christmas!
Long, long ago, before we settled at the North Pole...
Little Boogerwig got mad, Really mad… I mean REALLY, REALLY mad.
After talking with Boogerwig, the elves learned that he hates them and Christmas too. What they didn’t understand was why.
“It is I, Boogerwig, the most meanest of all mean meanies ever!”
The elves heard the sound of footsteps echoing off the walls. Someone or something was there.
The elves entered the spooky castle and started the quest for the meanie.
The elves were moving slowly towards the dark castle with one thing in mind – save Christmas.
“Let’s see. If I just cross-connect the wire from the who-ja-ba to the whatcha-callit and then bridge it to the flex-transistor…”
We need to find a way to open the gate if we’re to have any hope of saving Christmas.
Gotta be careful on this one; I’ve heard talk on that castle.
I’ve not heard of the elvish creature you speak of.
The three elves turned around to see a huge wall of white headed straight for them.
I’ve seen no new elf girl nor heard of her. The Snow Fairy might help you; she lives over the hill.
Just when they thought things couldn’t get any worse, they noticed two more eyes in the darkness scurrying straight at them.
Three elves set out on a mission to find the menace who is actively trying to ruin Christmas.
Waldo looked desperately around. Everyone blamed him for the mess.
The lights went off, the toy-making machine, the Appendapulator, started making the wrong toys, and the whole village was in a mess!
I’m writing this by the light of Rudolph’s nose. The lights are off at the entire North Pole!
There’s been quite a stir recently here at the North Pole. Our little friend ChrisMouse, who loves running behind the walls at Santa’s Village, has become a little bolder.
Something strange was happening in the Newsroom. It came out of nowhere and affected most of the news services at the North Pole Times - including the website. But Gizmo's team got 'er done!
The News systems at the North Pole Times have been acting strangly throughtout the last fews days. Gizmo and team are working to resolve the issue.
During the Christmas season, keeping kids focused can be a difficult undertaking. Harnessing all that excitement and energy can also be difficult for teachers.
While it’s true that the elves are already hard at work making toys, Halloween time offers a great opportunity for so much fun!
As kids around the world are getting ready to go back to school, the elves at the North Pole are gearing up for their favorite time of year...
August is a very special time at the North Pole. While the elves enjoy the last full month of summer, as the high temperature can sometimes reach up to 41° F, they also start to prepare for the colder months of Autumn and Winter.
Because the elves of the North Pole consider themselves global citizens, they enjoy celebrating all of the national holidays!
Things are really heating up in the North Pole now! In June, the elves enjoy temperatures that can reach up to 38° F!
Welcome to May in the North Pole. The elves are excited because there is usually a big temperature jump in May.
April showers, bring May flowers… But in the North Pole April brings a lot of fun and festive times for the elves. With holidays that celebrate their love of fun and faith, April has it all.
Right now our favorite elves are decorating for St. Patrick’s Day at the North Pole while also starting their spring cleaning and planting. They are dreaming about shamrocks and the sun!
