A princess loves inventing but her parents want her to leave the castle and make friends. She ventures out into the snow to look for some friends and finds herself in Santa’s workshop. “Eliza crept in through the open door, / Past huge sacks of letters piled up on the floor, / And there in a room filled with untidy shelves / Sat a miserable huddle of sad-looking elves.” Everyone is so busy as Santa is sick and the elves are running behind. Can Princess Eliza help them with one of her inventions and make friends at the same time?
