The Letter

By Ed Dzitko

It was on page 11 of the News-Tribune in the “Letters to Santa” section. Timmy now understood why his schoolmates were asking about the Vikings pajamas he had asked for for Christmas.

“I dropped that in the mailbox,” he said to nobody. “I addressed it to the North Pole. How’d it get into the newspaper?”

He sat a few of minutes, thinking, and using deduction skills he learned in the Hardy Boys adventures. He grabbed paper and pen.

Dear Santa,

Sorry to tell you this. There’s a leak at the North Pole.

Be careful with all those letters.
