The SPS – Santa Positioning System & Santa’s magic key

Today Scunner the Grumpy Elf told me about a Top Secret invention called the SPS – the Santa Positioning System.  He thinks he can use it to find my magic key.  I sure hope he can find it before Christmas Eve.  Here’s the email he sent me today:

Dear Santa

After our adventures over the Baltic Sea we all needed a rest.

Poor Tumshie was exhausted after the speedy flight. The good news was that I had a cousin in Germany. His name is Shuster and he makes and mends shoes. He told me that he often repairs your boots. I had never met him before but he is a very friendly Elf indeed. He made us a lovely meal. We had Potato Soup and then some Plum Tart.

After that we all went to bed and I slept for nearly twelve hours. When I woke up Professor Fumblebumble had arrived. I was so relieved. I have been worried about that poor reindeer and your key and wondering where they both are.

I suppose we should tell you what the secret invention is?

I had an idea after Last Christmas. I wanted to be sure that if you ever got lost in bad weather we could find you quickly. I thought that if we could make a wee machine that could track the magic you use then we would be able to find you faster than satellites.

It took a wee bit of doing but we got it working — mostly.

As your key is part of that magic then the SPS – Santa Positioning System should be able to find it.

The Professor has already got a signal and it is coming from Egypt. That’s far away so we are getting ready to leave.

I don’t know much about Egypt. Can you ask the children for some advice? What’s it like?

Okay Santa – I’ll let you know how we get on.

Bye for now


Egypt? I go there every year but only at night.

  3. the sphinx is a large dog shaped thing . come to that and go north-east and you come to the pyramids. the key might be on a high up ledge.

  4. Egypt is in the continent of Africa and is boiling hot :O! It is extremely different to the North Pole since it is cold there. The capital is Cairo and there is a river called The Nile, stretching from Upper Egypt to Lower Egypt! The ancient kings there were called Pharaohs and had to wear beards. A woman leader was a king and had to wear a beard :} ( hehe quite funny!)! The ‘kings’ were buried in pyramids made of sand. A sand structure called The Sphinx guards The Great Pyramid, The Sphinx’s nose recently fell off because he’s very old 🙂 haha!

  5. Hehe on the map my in Social Studies advanced duh! I had to locate Egypt and Saudi Arabia and the one I found first without researching I had to use to do a project on I was sorta excited to do it!

  6. Dear Scunner,

    WARNING–Egypt is like a big dessert, but you can locate by the Nile River. BE CAREFUL for large sand blizzards! I hope that you have a safe time. The sand blizzards happen mostly in the dessert. I also hope that you can find the Nile FIRST.

  7. There are buildings called piramyds and a statue called The Sphinx

    We did a project at school

    I think the rulers are called Faroes

    Good luck Scunner
