Ollie loves his job at the North Pole, working in the Games & Puzzles Department of the workshop. And he loves his best friend, Celia. And he loves the North Pole. Ollie pretty much loves everything about his life right now and he’d never want anything to change. That’s why he’s so alarmed when he finds out that Santa Claus is planning to retire – and he’s leaving the entirety of the North Pole to whoever can win his specially arranged challenges. Suddenly Ollie finds himself plunged straight into a race for the position of head honcho, along with BFF Celia, the three Claus children, and a host of other fellow workers. Can he win the position of Santa Claus? And if he can’t, in whose hands does the fate of the North Pole lie?
