Thanks to Twinklestar, that marzipan-loving but lightning-shy reindeer, Santa and his caravan have come crashing down in a storm, just two weeks before Christmas. Luckily he's (literally!) dropped into a nice neighborhood.
But Santa's not safe.
The ruthless Gerold Geronimus Goblynch plans to put an end to children's wishes and turn the holiday season into his personal money-making scheme. Only Santa stands between him and his Grinch-like tricks. With the help of kids Charlotte and Ben, Santa will have to face Goblynch and his Nutcracker goons if he's ever to rescue Christmas!
