Eubie is the happiest elf at the North Pole. More than anything else, he longs to be a part of Santa's sleigh team. Instead, he's stuck checking the naughty-or-nice lists. Until one Christmas Eve he sees something strange: In the whole town of Bluesville, not a single person has been nice. So with a pinch of elfish magic and a magical whoosh, Eubie's off to Bluesville. But can he turn a whole town of naughty children nice in just one day?
