We all know about the happy little elves that work up at the North Pole, building toys in Santa's workshop. But not everyone knows about Kevin, the most miserable little elf of all. Kevin moans and complains and drives all of the other elves crazy with his gloomy antics. When Santa tries to change Kevin's pessimistic view of Christmas, the outcome is not what he expected!
