Chapter 5 – The Mistletoe Bird
Looking Looking everywhere for Santas magical box. Up high, down low, sideways and upside down, but no clues presented themself to Astro Joey and her crew. “I’m cold” said little red Sanata helper. “We’ll never find Santa’s key and the children will not get their toys”. “Now now” said Astro Joey “stay positive and use your imagination. Be open to everything around you and you never know what we will find.” Rennie the reindeer added “don’t forget that my red nose oh so bright has also got a GPS in it from Santa, When I get a signal, you can shout out with glee. Ok ?” “Ok “said little red Santa helper.
“Biddie Bink Biddie Bink” went Rennie the Reindeers noise. “Girls, I’m getting a signal, there is something up ahead” They all shouted with glee and then stopped to listen. They could hear the sound of something being dragged through the snow. “Wilsh wilsh wilsh” followed by singing “I saw mummy kissing Santa Clause, underneath the Misletoe last night” With great speed Rennie the reindeers nose was rocking “Biddie Bink, Biddie Bink, Biddie Bink, Biddie Bink” Then right before her eyes she saw two big orange feet connecting to a funny looking bird “Yo Yo Yo, so whadda we have here” said the bird. “Hi there, I’m Astro Joey and these are Santas little helpers” said Astro Joey. “Who are you?” “Me, well I am Ms Miseltoe,” said the bird “what brings you little lovelies out to the white plains of the North Pole?” said Ms Mistletoe “Santa has a broken leg and we must find Santa’s magic box ,so we can make the toys and deliver them to the children all over the world” said Green Santa helper. “But we do not know where to go, can you help us?“
“Mmmmm” said Ms Misletoe. “Firstly you need to be careful of the Santa grouches, they are mean little things.” “That’s what Santa told us too” said Astro Joey. “Well you know what, if you go down the track, up the dale, over the hill and past the blanca tree, you will come to a lake. You must go across the lake, but I am not sure from there.” said Ms Misltletoe. “Ms Milsteltoe, that’s ok for me to get across the lake, because I am a snowman, but how will the rest of the crew get across the lake?” Here take this misletoe and you lay it on the ground and skate across.” she said. “Thank you so much Ms Mistletoe, Come on crew we have no time to waste” said Astro Joey.
“Ok, girls, be careful now, and don’t forget to look out for the Santa Grouches” said Ms Mistletoe.
