I’m not sure if he was trying to come back home, but Scunner the Grumpy Elf ended up at the South Pole. He’s still looking for the magic key I need back before Christmas Eve. Here’s his latest email.
Oh Santa, I am so sorry. We haven’t found your key or poor Birly. We flew after the reindeer and Birly but then the sleigh started to make some funny noises. It was a sound like metal squealing and the Professor said we had to land. He had some repairs to make.
So we landed in a place like the North Pole. It was cold and snowy. The Professor said that we were at the South Pole. Glaikit isn’t used to the really cold weather and I had to give him my coat. I was so worried I went for a wee walk.
The next thing I knew I saw hundreds and hundreds of silly looking black and white birds. They were all standing together keeping warm.
I asked if they had seen a reindeer anywhere and they all looked at me at the same time. Then they all looked at the sky.
I think they meant they saw him flying past.
I thanked them and went back to the sleigh.
There was more bad news. The Professor said that the only way we would take off again was if we used the SPS for spare parts.
Oh Santa, I don’t know what to do. Either we stay here or we fix the sleigh. We can’t find the key though.
I don’t know what to do.
Oh no, this is terrible news.
P.S. Should I leave the North Pole and go help Scunner? I really want to go but I’m needed here to get everything ready for Christmas Eve. You can click here to tell me or, scroll down to see what other people have written!
It was on a flying reindeer! Scunner, my Grumpy Elf, lost my magic key. It’s the magic key I use Christmas Eve to get into houses. Then Scunner found my magic key!
And then he lost my magic key — again!
I’m getting worried because Christmas is very soon. I really need that key to deliver presents with my flying reindeer. Here’s an email Scunner just sent me:
Remember the reindeer that had your magic key stuck on its antler? Well, we chased that reindeer for miles. Your magic key turned him into a flying reindeer! The poor beast was terrified. It had probably never been a flying reindeer before.

Scunner the Grumpy Elf has been trying to find my magic key. He looked for it in Scotland. Then he looked for it in London. He sent me another email today:
We arrived at Paris at 3 a.m. Even though it was so late we still had to be careful. It’s an awfy busy city and very well lit. We flew across the city and arrived at the Eiffel Tower. As we flew around it Glaikit shouted out.
“Jings, I see it Scunner. I see it right there.”
