The Belsnickel is coming… Dressed in black from head to toe. Porcupine quills in his hat. A whip in hand. And bells that jingle with every step.
Benjy, a lovable eleven-year-old in the 1930s, just can't seem to keep himself from pulling pranks and letting people down. His target is most often Miss Nettie, the schoolmarm at the one-room schoolhouse where he gets into more trouble than she's willing to tolerate.
