The elves can't be kept on shelves in this hilarious middle-grade debut about what happens when Santa opens a contest to find his successor.
Ollie is a very happy elf -- happy to work in Santa's workshop, happy to invent new games with his best friend Celia, happy to be a part of Christmas. Never in a million years would it have occurred to him that he'd have a chance to be the next Santa.
Who will sweep the chimney-climbing event? Whose ride will sleigh the competition? Where can a few extra reindeer be found? All these questions (and more) are answered in this hysterically funny, deeply adventurous tale of elves and Clauses vying for Pole position.
Thanks to everyone's pre-order support, I'm working on a video miniseries called
where I will tell jokes to dogs. If you would like to support the show, write "JWD" in the Avid Bookshop order comments, and every 5 will sponsor another episode of the show.
