Oops. I forgot.

There are links to buy our books RIGHT ON THIS BLOG POST! (Over there on the right side.)



P.S. Oh, well, by following the links on the post I just wrote, you can visit Deedy's website and see all the Cool Stuff there!


As some of you know, my job at the North Pole is to pick out the gift books Santa brings to children.  I  always try to match the books to each child.  I've never had any trouble doing this in the past. (Except for the time I was packed by mistake inside a bookshelf when I was only doing my job. Probably by Whizzy. If you haven't read that story, here's a handy dandy link: Tizzy, the Christmas Shelf Elf )

But now there are four books (including the one linked above) that I know all kids aged four and over will LOVE.  The problem is that these are about me and three of my best friends, Blizzy, Dizzy, and Frizzy. (Although four other elves—Bizzy, Fizzy, Whizzy, and Quizzy—Santa Claus, and four little boys are also in these stories.)

I just cannot decide if I can put these books in Santa's pack without feeling that I am somehow playing favorites!  I'm sure that there are lots and lots of great books out there besides our Izzy Elf Stories. At the same time, I KNOW  that kids will LOVE having our very own story/poems read aloud at Christmastime. (Or as some reviewers have said, anytime at all.)

Please help me out with this problem!  If you will order the books for your children YOURSELVES, then I won't have to make this tricky decision. (I have to confess this is keeping me awake nights. And Christmas IS coming.)

Here are more links so you can do this:




Thank you so much!

We Izzy Elves have heard that some people think our boss, Santa Claus, is an old-fashioned kind of guy. What a hilarious notion that is! Santa uses the very latest technology for everything from finding out what kids want for Christmas by reading their internet wishlists to finding his way to all their houses to deliver toys by using Virtual Reins! And he makes sure we Izzies have the most up to date gizmos for getting our jobs done in the most modern, efficient way.

Of course, S.C. is old-fashioned in other ways. We do have to give him a hand sometimes with new electronic devices. (He says this requires a "younger-type brain".)

So he's still very much a Merry Old Elf and whatnot.

He is also very, very wise and helps us solve our problems (just as he recently helped Frizzy get over her Seasonal Affection Distress in Frizzy, the S.A.D. Elf).

Just like kids the world over, we do love him!

The Izzies


We are trying to write about how much we do love our new jobs without giving away what they are!  This is not easy to do.  But we hate it when people tell the ending of a story before we read it, and we assume that you don't want to know the ending of Frizzy's story, Frizzy, the S.A.D. Elf, before you read it!  (Of course, all of you who have read it already will know exactly what we are talking about.  If the rest of you want to know, you'll have to buy our book through one of the links we are putting at the end of our post. That's just the way it is. Besides, the children in your lives will love it when you read the story aloud to them.  Even big kids. Especially big kids, actually.)

First of all, I (Frizzy) am having SUCH a GREAT Time putting r - - -b - - - , e - - l - - - - - , and l - - s - - - - on my new toys!  (I think they are EXTREMELY beautiful, even if some b - - - don't like them!) It did take quite a while for me to find just the right thing to do to cure my S.A.D. (Seasonal Affection Distress) but finally Santa came up with the perfect solution.  Yay, S.C.!!!!

Secondly, I (Dizzy) am so HAPPY working on my new toy, m - - - - - - t - - - - -!  My symbol has always been bolts of l - - - - - - - -, so I get a real kick out of painting them on! Not to mention talons, and fangs, skulls, etc.

Besides, I am still making all the remotes for both my new toys and Frizzy's, so we still get to be "co-worker elves". To quote from Frizzy's story (talking about me and Frizzy):

He would make the remotes to control all the movements
And then they would test them to make new improvements...

We like working together best of all! (But don't tell the other Izzies, or they will tease us about that.)
