Overview

Holly Hamilton hates Christmas.

Since her parents died last year, she�s been watching out for her brother in an orphanage, where they pick pockets for the unforgiving Mr. Grott, who�s some sort of supervillain-in-training. The looming holiday brings back painful memories for Holly, and her brother getting his hopes up for presents he will never receive serves to make her feel angrier than ever.

That all changes one day when circumstances (and a sleigh pulled by a gaggle of ornery reindeer) whisk the orphans to The North Pole, where they meet creatures they�d only read about in fairytales. Thus begins Holly�s adventures in Tinseltown, where she learns the logistics behind Christmas, and uncovers the secret origins of the elves, and even Santa himself.
