My Christmas plans with Will are stalled when my boss decides to have me oversee a bunch of kids. Imagine my surprise when they are elves.
My Christmas plans are thrown off track with the boss's demands. To make matters worse, he doesn't tell me the so called children are not kids but adults—albeit short ones. And is it my fault they're actual elves and I have no idea how to address them? Who would know that? The elves want me to help them find they're missing baker. I agree to recruit Will. Maybe some of our Christmas can be saved after all.
I hope Will and I can accomplish our mission soon. The spy business interferes enough with our personal plans without elves tumbling through. But can we do it in time to save our own Christmas?
