Email from an elf – Santa’s grumpy elf sends an email

An email from an elf.  I love reading and writing emails to children.  I never thought I would look forward to reading an email from an elf!

Scunner, my grumpy elf, sent me another email.  He’s trying to find my lost magic key. Here’s his email:


Dear Santa

We got to London. Jing’s I’d forgotten how big it is. The city looks beautiful. There are Christmas lights everywhere.

When I brought Birly here in the summer she had wanted to see Buckingham Palace.

So we flew past Big Ben and over Tower Bridge we headed towards Buckingham Palace. It was very early in the morning and was very quiet. But I know that there are soldiers and everything keeping guard. So we had to be careful.

I asked Birly to drop us off and hover above us in the clouds. Glaikit and I went looking for the key.

We looked everywhere but couldn’t find it. Then Glaikit, he’s awfy daft, whispered.

‘I see something Scunner’

The next thing I knew he was holding up a bright red rubber ball.

‘Does that look like a key?’ I asked him and he smiled and giggled.

‘Naw, but listen.’ He shook the ball and it made a jingling sound.

Before I could tell him to be quiet this wee dog came running towards us. It looked a wee bit like a fat fox from the front.

‘Put the ball down Glaikit.’ But it was too late. The wee dog had heard the noise and was heading right for us. It was one of the Royal Corgis.

I took the ball from him and threw it as far away as I could. It was no use. The corgi was still chasing us.

Birly must have seen what had happened because she came swooping down from the sky. Glaikit and I ran towards the sleigh but the Corgi managed to get hold of the bottom of my troosers.

Tumshie started galloping and then climbing and as we took off my troosers were ripped away.

The last thing I saw was the wee Corgi shaking and playing with them.

Thankfully I had packed three extra pairs. So, I’ll be fine. We’re going to Paris next.

PS Can you ask the children of ideas where we can look in Paris? Ask if any of them have been there?


I am still worried because I know how big London is. I do hope that he finds the key. I don’t know what will be in my next email from an elf.

  18. I think you should not look but ask for people if they have seen a key. Since there so much people in London there must be so many people that saw it.

  19. Dear Santa Clause,
    Let me tell you how extra good I’ve been this year. I went to the breakfast with Santa and helped out through the whole thing and I’ve been extra kind this year to every one. I’ve made four friends through out the summer. And I’ve made presents for my whole family my mom bigsarah dad and my brother and sister. I love my family. My freind the lunch lady got me a present and I’m doing the same to her.
    Love you Santa.
    Your favorite angel. Allie
