Product description

"I honestly did believe this shelf gig was going to be great. 'Get out and see the world,' they said. 'Experience the joy of wide-eyed kids, holiday cheer, and the Christmas spirit,' they promised. 'Finally leave your parents' basement for once in two hundred and sixty-seven years,' they told me. I was sold. "And off I went. As a member of Santa's spy squad, I headed down south for the holidays to help the big guy decide who's naughty and who's nice. It was going to be a wonderful change of pace from the screwing, hammering, sanding, painting, and wrapping happening in Ol' St. Nick's workshop. "Or so I thought ...--Horace the Elf In this for-parent's-eyes-only parody of the popular holiday title, The Elf on the Shelf, readers laugh along with Horace as he goes AWOL from his Christmas duties. This photo-story set to verse is the unauthorized (and hilarious) tale of one disgruntled little helper with a gift for making mischief.

This Bad Elf book reflects its title. It is terribly written, terribly structured both in rhythm, text and story content. It is neither rhyming poetry, nor is it free verse. The story drags at places and then skips logical sequencing. It reads independently of its illustrations, then the text requires the reader to cue from the illustrations. I am extremely disapointed that I ordered this piece of trash to travel half way across the world when it shouldnt have gone past the editors rubbish bin. I wouldnt bother wasting your money, buy something else. The original Elf on the Shelf however is fantastic if you have little kiddies.
