Princess Eliza is lonely in her beautiful snow palace. Stuck inside all day with no one to play with, she figures out how to make almost anything with a few bits of wood and some string -- including her own toys! But her parents think that her mechanical inclinations aren't suited to a princess, and tell her she'd be better off devoting her time to searching for a friend.
As she sets off to find one, Eliza is excited to stumble across a group of elves. But -- OH, DEAR! -- Santa isn't feeling well, and there are still so many presents to make! With her knack for invention and clever problem-solving, could Princess Eliza be just the person to save Christmas?
"Eliza invents a letter-reading machine, a 'robotic gift-picking contraption,' and a present-wrapping machine and makes modifications to Santa’s sleigh. A grateful Santa invites her along on his Christmas Eve flight along with her new posse of elf friends, and Eliza’s parents accept her special talent and build the princess her own workshop. The bouncy text written in rhyming couplets is well-matched by large-format, mixed-media illustrations filled with humorous details and intriguing, complex contraptions of Eliza’s design." -- Kirkus Reviews
