Back by popular demand — in a new midi edition! Santa finds a forgotten present — and is determined to deliver it himself.
One Christmas Eve after the reindeer are asleep, Santa sees a present still in the sack — Harvey Slumfenburger’s present. And so he starts a very long journey on foot . . . by plane . . . on skis . . . and so on until he reaches Harvey’s hut, slides down the chimney, and delivers the last Christmas present, safe and sound.

Ever have one of those days? One late Christmas Eve, after delivering presents all around the world, Santa is finally crawling into bed when he makes a horrible discovery. Harvey Slumfenburger's present is still in his sack! His reindeer are already tucked into bed, but Santa must find a way to get that present to Harvey, a little boy who lives in a hut at the top of the Roly Poly Mountain. Wearily, he trudges out into the cold winter night. Fortunately, a veritable fleet of vehicles becomes available to assist him in his mission. When a jeep skids in the snow, a boy with a motorbike appears. When the motorbike can go no farther, a girl with skis picks up our wayward elfin hero. And once the present is finally deposited safely in Harvey Slumfenburger's stocking, Santa still has to make the return trip!
