When Father Christmas gives the World’s Children cheap presents they make a Huge Fuss. To solve this problem a special computer is dropped at the North Pole, so that Santa can get children the expensive presents they need. The elves—who have always wanted a computer—are very excited, but for some reason Father Christmas refuses to use it. Only in the autumn, when Santa leaves to visit the shopping mall grottoes, do the elves finally manage to switch the computer on. Once the computer is on, the North Pole starts to change for the worse. And with Father Christmas away, it is left to Ethel the Sensible Elf and Laurence the Ladybird Nosed Reindeer to try and put things right.

This exciting and fully illustrated story will delight children and amuse adults. The ten chapters make ideal bedtime reading.
