Bizzy (Santa's "Right Hand Man") is a great organizer. He not only convinces S. C. (Santa Claus) to let the depressed Izzy Elves go on a much-needed vacation, but he finds a great place where they can blend in-Santa Claus Lane. What he doesn't plan on, however, is the other elves calling him "bossy boots," or two smart boys, Henry and Miles, recognizing the Izzies despite their disguises.

Review quote

This is such a charming and entertaining new addition to D. Jensen's wonderful, award-winning series of contemporary Christmas stories in verse, modeled on the 19th century classic poem, "A Visit from St. Nicholas." I love them all, but this one, I think, is my favorite and not to be missed this holiday season. It's absolutely delightful! I love its timely theme of Santa's elves longing to get away from their normal surroundings at the North Pole and to go to a warm clime full of delights. I think we can all relate to these longings right now! And maybe what I love most is the book's spirit-it's just so fun and breezy and funny and positive.

And its super-witty rhymes and witty references to contemporary life will have a direct appeal to the minds and hearts of today's children. The illustrations are wonderfully engaging-so colorful, contemporary, whimsical, and imaginative and at the same time evoking classic illustration styles of the past. This is so hard to achieve! And the poetic language of the book also shows this same kind of double evocation of past children's classics and the contemporary life of children.

I'm a parent and I was so delighted reading this book and enjoying its illustrations, from start to finish. It's not only a book that will engross and entertain children--especially during the holiday season--it will also be greatly enjoyed by any adult reading to a child. - 5 Stars Martha B., Goodreads Review

My 8 year-old son loves this book! He read it on his own and said he loves the interesting plot and witty rhymes. We're lucky to have such a great local, living author in our state of New Hampshire!!! We're planning to donate this book to his 2nd-grade class so that other kids could enjoy it, too. Thank you, Ms. Dorothea Jensen!" 5 Stars -T, Amazon Review

My California grandson has thoroughly enjoyed the Izzy Elf series. However, "The Bossy Boots Elf" is his favorite. This might be because it highlights Christmas with sand and palm trees. Take notice all sunshine state dwellers, you will love this newest elf escapade. 5 Stars -R. Hampe, Goodreads
