Imagine a Christmas story told by an author who needed to sell a warehouse full of fruitless lemon trees? Then this is the Christmas story you have to hear... The North Pole is in crisis! Because of a few mischievous elves working in Santa's Coal Division, bad boys and girls were given interesting figurines made of coal. So interesting that even good children wanted them, causing Santa to lose all heart. Santa locks himself away, causing all sorts of chaos. Randolph, the only reindeer working at the Coal Division, is less than enthused to help solve the crisis. A reindeer with a checkered past, he sourly agrees to help the Coal Division and Santa's reindeer travel to the Valley of the Last-Minute Gifts to retrieve leftover coal figurines. There, he meets the deer of his dreams and the Little bullied boy, the owner of the Lemon, Lemon Tree. Randolph and the others must convince the boy, to give back carved coal the boy uses to his precious Lemon, Lemon Tree from freezing. Because of this, the team must artfully compromise to return Santa his Christmas Cheer.
On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me a pukeko in a ponga tree.
Includes an audio CD of the song so you can sing along!
