Ollie and Celia think they know what the life of an elf is supposed
to be like: Make toys. Help Santa. Make more toys. Help Santa.
Try out a new ice-cream flavor. Help Santa.
But then Santa rocks the North Pole with a surprise announcement!
He's decided this is going to be his last year in the Big Red Suit--and
instead of letting his oldest son, the unfortunately named
Klaus Claus, take over, he's opening up the job to any kid who
wants to apply--Claus or elf.
The Santa Trials have begun!
Ollie and Celia enter the contest, having no idea whatsoever that
they'll soon have to squeeze through impossible chimneys, race runaway
sleighs, sweet-talk a squad of rowdy reindeer, and consume
cruel amounts of cookies and milk. It's both an adventure and a
survival test, far beyond what any elf or Claus has been asked to
do before. But whoever rises to the top will get a reward even bigger
than Christmas . . .
