It is the day before Christmas at Bird Scratch Ranch. When Nanna sets young Willy and his friends down to tell them the story of a long ago Christmas Eve.
It was the Christmas Eve morning when she herself was about their age. When a bright red helicopter landed at Bird Scratch Ranch. Out of it hopped Mr. Giantopolis, Santa Claus’s head elf. He announced to the goats that all the reindeer at the North Pole were down with the flu and confined to their stalls till they were well, leaving them with quite the dilemma with no one to pull Santa’s sleigh that night. He was searching for volunteers to help save Christmas.
After getting permission from their human at Bird Scratch Ranch. Nanna’s friends— Billy, Silly, Wally, Molly, Jester, Chester, Flash, and Dash—all volunteer. Then she who is one of the smallest goats in the herd is chosen to lead Santa’s sleigh that night.
