The Christmas Secret

by David Delamare ©1991 - Green Tiger Press

 

When a great storm keeps Santa from visiting a village, a master toymaker/ex-navigator (Richardson) saves the day by making presents for all of the children in the village.

Richardson had to sell his "beloved phonograph" to get enough money to buy the supplies for making those presents. Since Richardson owned the only phonograph in the village and since the two greedy pigs who run the Emporium had always wanted that prized machine Richardson was able to get top dollar.

Richardson keeps secret that he substituted for Santa, but Santa finds out and offers him the position of Santa's helper for making toys.
