“Santa’s Secret Star” is a story about Santa and Rudolph
learning how to find their way back to the North Pole using
constellations. After Santa finishes his Christmas deliveries,
he and his reindeer become lost. Without a compass, he and
Rudolph turn to the constellations for help, and the stars lead
them to the North Star, which guides them home.
“The Alien Who Stole Christmas” tells the story of Santa meeting
Mr. Freep, an alien from another world. Together they head off
on a cosmic adventure taking them to the farthest regions of the
solar system and try to make it back in time for Santa to
deliver toys to the children of Earth.
