Letters to Santa

An Elf’s Story Animated Special

Nine-year-old Taylor McTuttle has reached a crossroads. Does he believe Santa Claus really knows who is naughty or nice? Does he even believe in Santa anymore? An Elf’s Story is the inspirational tale of Chippey, a Scout Elf who is assigned by Santa to restore Taylor’s belief in Christmas magic. When the boy breaks the number one Elf on the Shelf rule, and Chippey loses his Christmas magic, only a change of heart can set things right. Through the power of love and forgiveness, Taylor and Chippey learn the most important lesson of all: that true belief cannot be taught. A family holiday classic for generations to come, An Elf’s Story is filled with singing, dancing, magic and the unforgettable message that Christmas is something we carry in our hearts.
