So as we mentioned in previous posts, if it weren't for Amazon, we'd all just be a gleam in Deedy's eye! (That would be the eye of Dorothea Jensen, FYI.) Once she found out that she could publish books on Amazon via CreateSpace and KDP, she started scribbling down our stories like CRAZY, and every single one of them has won honors/awards!
We also wrote a post about the time we freaked out because our books were shown as OUT OF STOCK at Amazon just a week or two before CHRISTMAS. As you might recall, we e-mailed Jeff Bezos about this and threatened to rat him out to Santa, personally. Jeff fixed that problem ASAP. (Even Jeff Bezos doesn't want coal in his Christmas stocking, apparently.)
In order to pay tribute to Amazon's role in our stories coming into being, we consulted with Deedy and decided she could put something in the latest one (Frizzy, the S.A.D. Elf) that had a direct reference (slightly disguised) to Amazon's wishlists. Here's what she wrote for us:
For S.C. has learned there are wishlists galore
Where children can add the new toys they adore,
With multiple websites where each kid can post
A list of the gifts he or she wants the most.
Now Santa is eager to try this e-tool
To know in advance just what items are cool,
To help him make certain, upon Christmas Eve,
He has the right toys when he’s ready to leave.
So he wants to e-show off all toys that are new
And find out who adds them to which wishing queue.
He does still read letters that make their way here,
But wishlists are added to all through the year.
They’ll give The Big Picture to guide Elf Construction
And help Santa Claus to plan out toy production.

So there you have it, our Izzy Elf Salute to Amazon.
Thanks again for letting Deedy share our stories with the world!
Much love from,
Bizzy, Blizzy, Dizzy, Fizzy, Frizzy, Quizzy, Tizzy, and Whizzy.
