When Santa Fell to Earth

Plot Summary

The last thing Charlotte and Ben expected is that Niklas, the last real Santa, crash lands onto their street in the middle of a thunderstorm just before Christmas. Niklas is on the run from the ruthless Goblynch and his army of nutcrackers who have outlawed everything magical and transformed the bright and peaceful Christmas world into a dark and hostile place, governed by greed and money. Luckily for Niklas, he lands in a friendly neighborhood and meets Ben and Charlotte. But he is stranded without his currently missing marzipan-loving reindeer, Twinklestar, who is in- visible in the “normal” world. In return for the kids’ help finding his reindeer, Niklas offers them the best Christmas ever. And if finding an invisible reindeer is not difficult enough, Ben and Charlotte get involved in car chases, run into fake Santas and evil nutcrackers, knowing that if Niklas fails to fight off Goblynch, Christmas may be lost forever ... “A big-hearted holiday tale by the best-selling author of DRAGONRIDER and the INKHEART trilogy, Cornelia Funke. Magical.” (The Washington Post)
