This would have been ever so much more seasonal had I managed to get this review written before the 25 th. Oh, well. I guess I can think of it as being unusually early for Christmas 2016.
For centuries, Kris Kringle has played an ever-more-demanding role as Santa Claus, bringing presents to children around the world. Now danger threatens.
- an ambitious elf is planning a coup;
- Santa’s former
slaveservant Peter is still holding a grudge;
- four bright kids — Harald, Shuggar, Bart, and Princess — have managed to find Santa’s realm.
Could it be worse? Yes! Danger is close at hand in the person of Gladys. The new Mrs. Claus.
