How CAN Santa deliver billions of presents to the whole world in just one night? With an army of one million combat-style Field Elves and a vast, state-of-the-art control center under the ice of the North Pole! So how could this incredible operation have MISSED one child, Gwen?! To Santa’s young son, Arthur, it threatens to end the magic of Christmas. With retired Grandsanta, a rebellious young elf, an old sleigh and some untrained reindeer, Arthur sets out in a crazy mission to deliver the last present! They get lost, lose reindeer, and land in danger several times, ultimately being mistaken for aliens and causing an international military incident. Can Arthur, with the help of Grandsanta and Bryony really be the heroes of the night and deliver the missing present before Gwen wakes up, thus saving Christmas? Deck the halls with excitement, fun and wonder in this new Christmas classic!
- Can you think of a time when doing the right thing got really complicated?
- Why do you think Arthur was the best choice for the next Santa Claus?
- What character did you like the best? Why?
- When was a time when fear kept you from doing something you really wanted to do? How did Arthur manage to get past the fear to finally deliver the present? Would that work for you? Can you think of other ways to get past your fear when wanting to help another?
- What do you think happened to the reindeer that got lost?
And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is please
