It's the night before Hogwatch. And it's too quiet.
There's snow, there are robins, there are trees covered with decorations, but there's a notable lack of the fat man who delivers the toys....
Susan the governess has to find him before morning, otherwise the sun won't rise. And unfortunately her only helpers are a raven with an eyeball fixation, the Death of Rats ('the grim squeaker') and an oh god of hangovers. Worse still, someone is coming down the chimney. This time he's carrying a sack instead of a scythe, but there's something regrettably familiar....
Ho. Ho. Ho.
