Nosing Around

Ms. Claus and I were out for a stroll in the new fallen snow, when we heard a loud roar. “That sounded like a scared polar bear!” “What could possibly scare a Polar Bear?” asked Anya. As soon as Ms. Claus finished her question, Polar Pete came running around a big mound of snow. Stopping …


Making New Friends

Ms. Claus and I were about to sit down for lunch in the dining hall when she nudged me. “Who is that little elf sitting all by herself in the corner?” “That’s Candice. She just arrived the other day to start school at Elf University.” “She looks sad. Has Candice made any friends here yet?” …


North Pole Repeat Day

Going over some reports on my desk, I heard a knock. When I looked up, Pete and Repeat, two of the best elves in quality control, stood at my opened door. “Can we come in?” Pete asked. “Can we come in?” Repeat duplicated. With a wave of my hand, I motioned them to enter. As …


Playing Outside

“Gotcha Lyra,” shouted Highstep as he tagged his friend and took off running. “Let’s see what speed you have. Try and get me.” “With Summer approaching in the Arctic, who wouldn’t want to be outside?” Anya began as the two of us watched the elves running and playing games. “There are so many things to …


Mother’s Day

A soft kiss on my forehead woke me up. “What are you doing up so early?” “It’s Mother’s Day, and I decided to do some of the work for the elves who are mothers so they can enjoy their day. I’m starting in the kitchen and giving Blanch the day off.” “That’s so you!” Standing …


Polar Pete’s New Friend

After lunch Ms. Claus and I exited Christmas Village and headed up a small hill to the West. As we reached the top, Anya gave me a nudge. “Look Santa, there’s Nippy and Pete.” Trudging toward our North Pole friends, Anya frowned. “Why are they talking to that snow pile between them?” “Hmm?! It just …


Fooling Santa

Sitting at my desk, I leaned back and continued reading some letters from children. A knock on the door caused me to look up. “Good morning, Hanna,” I said greeting the elf. “I see you brought my morning snack.” “I do have your hot cocoa, Santa,” the kitchen helper said and placed the steaming mug …


Skill Or Luck

Ms. Claus and I had just arrived in the Elves Recreation Center when we noticed Lyra and Dewey playing cards. “You must be the luckiest elf at the North Pole,” I heard Dewey sneer. “It’s all skill,” Lyra snapped. “Luck,” shouted Dewey. When the discussion worsened into a yelling match, Anya and I stepped in. …


Troubled Elf

When Tempe and Bernard arrived, the three of us slipped into the observation room above the Bike and Scooter Workshop. “We have to be quiet and not let on that we are observing this group of young elves,” I whispered. “I want you to watch Elfanzo, a Whelp in training. He’s the one in green …


Lucky Charm

“Did you hear if anyone found Lyra’s good luck charm?” Ms. Claus asked after completing our meeting in the mailroom. “I don’t know. I’m heading over to Bernard’s office to see if there is any news about it.” “That necklace and locket mean so much to Lyra,” Anya responded as she walked me to the …
