When the mysterious sleigh bell bonks Royal Penguin Princess Crystal (Hillary Duff), of Royal Rookery Rock, in her noggin, she and her sister, Princess Lucinda, go on the quest to Santa's City in the North Pole, with their hearts. Along with the way, they must become friends, make new friends (like Pup the Seal and the Pirates of the Blubber Belly), face vicious predators (like a Leopard Seal and a Polar Bear), facing Crystal's compass' direction, and visualizing Santa's City in order to return the bell, while they trying to stop the Terribly Deep Thinkers from taking over their royal parents' throne. Featuring delightful characters, a heartwarming story written by Michael Aschner, and the music of Michael Lloyd and Keith Heffer, this celebrates family, friendship, and Christmas, the most wonderful time of the year. Written by Sean Herbs (LuckyDuck)
