We Izzies are delighted to report that many, many people came to the Hopkinton, NH, Library on Wednesday to hear Deedy (Dorothea Jensen to you) read Frizzy, the S.A.D. Elf. It was apparently a record breaker for attendance at a children's event there!

Our very favorite moment was when Deedy reached the end of Frizzy's story. While everyone was clapping, one little boy shouted "I WANT THAT BOOK!"

This is just a reminder that Deedy will be doing only one more book reading/signing between now and Christmas.  Here are the details:

2 p.m. Sunday, December 7, MainStreet Bookends, Warner, NH. (Click on the link to learn more.)

Please come if you can!

(We'll be there, too, but only in print!)

On a new website (under construction) via its Facebook page.

We like this especially because we Izzies have always considered ourselves to be Global Features. We do live at the Very Top of it, after all.(The Globe, that is.)

Check it out!

DD Solidarity!

Here's a little something Dee Dee Lozier, who is working on prototype dolls for us Izzy Elves, posted on Facebook.

So now we Izzies have TWO Dee Dees on our team!!! (Although Dorothea spells hers DEEDY.)


"Check out the winner for the young adult children's category. I have the privilege of having met the author of Frizzy the S.A.D. Elf and I am currently collaborating with her to use my sewing talents to bring this spunky elf to life in doll form. If you are looking for a gift to give your little for Christmas, her elf series is creative, jolly, intelligent, and fun for littles and parents alike..."
We're so excited to announce the winning books from The 2014 Red City Review Book Awards...
First Prize Winner - Young Adult/Children's - Frizzy the S.A.D. Elf by Dorothea Jensen
