Big News that Rhymes with Circus!

Deedy (that's Dorothea Jensen to you) told us that Kirkus Reviews Magazine has selected its review of A Buss from Lafayette to feature in the Indie section of its December issue. Apparently less than 10% of Indie Reviews are selected for this, so it is a big honor.

(We would like to point out that Kirkus also wrote a  great review of one of our stories, Dizzy, the Stowaway Elf. Yes, that was a while ago. But we are posting it below in a marked manner, anyhow.

Appealing Energy and Colorful Verbal Imagery

A little elf’s clandestine adventure as a stowaway on Santa’s sleigh takes an unexpected turn in an engaging contemporary spin on the classic 19th-century poem, “A Visit from St. Nicholas”…appealing energy and colorful verbal imagery…The author propels her present-day take on the classic Christmas poem with gentle humor and suspense, smoothly incorporating lines from the original poem into her lively tale about a stowaway elf. –Kirkus Reviews

Our only quibble with this review is that Deedy seems to get all the credit for writing it. We Izzies actually LIVE these adventures: Deedy just writes 'em  all down.

(Dizzy adds his observation that riding in the back of that sleigh was NOT actually that much fun, so he did the hard part.)

Oops, we seem to have used up all the post space talking about the Izzy Elf Kirkus Review. Can you imagine that?

We'll let Deedy tell you about the Kirkus review of A Buss from Lafayette in our very next post.

We promise.
