“It was the night before the night before Christmas....” and the Holley children are on a secret mission to answer the question of children everywhere, Is there a Santa Claus? Tonight, while Mom, Pop, and Granny are asleep, David and Caroline will conduct a live, on location test of David’s invention, the high tech P. E. M. Wizard Device, so it will be ready for Santa’s visit on Christmas Eve.
Meanwhile, back at the North Pole, Santa’s elves are about to embark on their own secret mission to prepare the way for Santa’s trouble-free delivery of presents to every boy and girl on Christmas Eve.
The fun begins when elf #1223 sets off the P. E. M. Device and is captured by David, who locks him in the carrier belonging to the family’s French Bulldog. This unexpected turn of events threatens Santa’s Christmas Eve journey and presents the Holley children with a dilemma.
What will David and Caroline do with the captured elf? Will someone from the North Pole come to rescue #1223? Will Santa’s elves outwit the children so he can make his Christmas Eve toy delivery? This delightful story has some surprises for the reader.
