SANTOPIA - Saving Noelle
Taking the newly born Noelle with him, her father Taraxa makes a brave escape from the Realm of Drear, crossing Frozen Lake at night in a blizzard, while the Baroness meets with the Black Haruspex, a Seer of Some Things Unseen, to figure out what to do about Prince Deck being born before Princess Dazzle.
Taraxa makes it to the White Sage’s Palace and when the Sage hears his story, he takes Taraxa and the baby to Santopolis to meet with Santa Pops, who decides to keep the baby with him.
Back at Castle Drear, the Baroness sends the Gelf Spicata to bring the baby born in the Koliback Wood and her parents back to her immediately.
Santa Pops decides what to do with Noelle to protect her, and tells his best friend, Henry, who’s leaving for London on the Grand Sleigh with Santa on Christmas Eve.
