Abstract/Summary


The Moe family has just settled into bed on Christmas Eve when they run into a problem. They can’t sleep. Fortunately, Santa comes to their rescue…but only temporarily. When Santa has difficulty getting back to his sleigh and Mr. Moe tries to return the favor, the Moe family finds themselves in the same predicament as before, and the comedy of errors continues. Finally, in desperation and with unequalled ingenuity, they figure out a solution and settle in for a long winter’s nap.
