was a cold winters night and time to retire and
Santa Claus sat by his warm fire. He said to himself
well I made that nice sled that I promised to Johnny
and I painted it red. I fixed up that train and the
dolls are now finished and I think I'm almost ready
to take it steady. He heaved a great sigh and said
'I'll take a nap' just then on the door there came a
loud rap. It was the wicked Squeebublians who hate
Christmas cheer and they said to Santa 'we'll fix
you this year'. So they tied him up tight, though he
put up a good fight they carried him off through the
cold dark night.
Now Jonathan Thomas who's a wee little lad, heard
what had happened and he felt very sad. He said
'I'll find Santa with help of course, from the Man
in the Moon and Gorgonzola the horse'. So the three
started out on their perilous way, to find Santa
Claus before Christmas day.
Well you'll be surprised how much trouble they've
had. What with Giants and Goblins and things that
are bad. The wickedest kind of a wicked old witch,
who rules over a land called Rumplestitch. She has
done her best with her terrible magic, to make the
end of this story tragic.
But the good Fairy Queen has kept them from harm,
for whatever happens she knows the right charm. I've
always had faith that the three would succeed, but
you can't make mistakes when you do a good deed.
Well they walked right into Looking Glass Land where
they met Queen Alice in her court so grand. She gave
them a whistle to make them grow tall, or if they
preferred it would make them grow small.
They were chased by a dragon with thirteen tails and
then the Squeebublians put them in jail. But
Jonathon Thomas he kept his head and blew the
whistle as Queen Alice said. He grew so small he
crept under the door and then he grew up and what is
more, he opened the door for the man in the Moon and
they rescued Santa quicker than soon. Now they're
home safe in Santa Claus Land and having a party
that's ever so grand. I'd like to be there myself...
