Description

The Santa's Izzy Elves stories are not your usual picture books: older kids who enjoy playing with words and reading rhythmical verse will love them, too! One reason for this is that although these stories echo the famous 19th century poem, "A Visit from St. Nicholas" Santa's Izzy Elves are definitely 21st century, with electronic devices galore in their North Pole workshop! This "Story Monster Approved" third story in the series tells what happens when Dizzy (Tizzy's best friend), eager to have an adventure of his own, sneaks aboard Santa's sleigh on Christmas Eve. He literally drops into the bedroom of two little boys, Drake and Stuart, and the three of them share a wild joy ride that might be even more of an adventure than Dizzy was hoping for!show more

About Dorothea Jensen

Dorothea Jensen, born in Boston, Massachusetts, grew up in Chillicothe, Illinois. She majored in English Literature at Carleton College. After graduation, she taught high school English, then served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in South America. Later she earned a masters degree in Secondary Education (with a concentration in TESOL) at the University of New Mexico. She has lived in many places, including: Massachusetts, Illinois, Minnesota, Brazil, Tennessee, New Mexico, Virginia, the Netherlands, Pennsylvania, and New Hampshire. Married to her Carleton classmate, David, she has three grown children and six grandsons. She is also the author of THE RIDDLE OF PENNCROFT FARM, an award-winning novel about the American Revolution for young readers. Named a Teachers Choice Selection by the International Reading Association soon after publication, it is read in classrooms throughout the U.S. It also won a first prize in the historical fiction category of the 2014 Purple Dragonfly Award, and was issued as an e-book by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in 2014. Dorothea hugely enjoys writing and reading aloud stories in verse. She tells her grandsons (who "star" in some of the stories) that she has eight elves in her head telling her what to write down. This is not far from the truth. Four of the stories dictated by the elves have been finished; four more are in the works. Dorothea has completed another historical novel for young readers, called A BUSS FROM LAFAYETTE. It is set in 1825 in the small town in New Hampshire where she has lived since 1991. In addition to writing, Dorothea is an experienced actress and singer. She performed with the Ex Machina Baroque Opera Company in Minneapolis, and also played most of the Gilbert and Sullivan battle-ax contralto and ingenue mezzo roles with companies in Philadelphia and Minneapolis. The last time she played a ditzy G & S teenager was when she was 44, which required a wig, contact lenses, false eyelashes, and plenty of make up! She has narrated her Izzy Elves stories for audiobooks, available at Amazon.com, Audible.com, and iTunes.show more
