Overview

And I lived here before . . .

That insufferable bore

Book and plush gift set

It's the most wonderful time of the year The time when tiny elves spy on all the little children and then go dancing off to tattle to Santa. . . . What? That doesn't sound wonderful to you?

Right. The Dwarf in the Drawer doesn't think so, either. Why does that dim-witted elf show up every December?

In the tradition of "Goodnight iPad" and "Runaway Mummy," this is a hilarious parody of Santa's elvish spy and a story that will make us all take another look at the true meaning of Christmas."

This very funny spoof of the bestselling Elf on the Shelf phenomenon offers a dose of holiday sanity for families beleaguered by Santa’s ever-vigilant, shelf-dwelling lackey. Narration comes from the eponymous dwarf who “live in your drawer/ With your clean underwear.” As the story progresses, the perturbed creature rails against the misery inflicted by the elf: “For most of the year, things at home were real peachy./ Then in came that usurper, acting all preachy./ Who died and made that elf king?/ That creep who made Christmas a terrible thing?” Gonzales’s loosely rendered cartoons play up the humor of the verse, giving the elf a sinister leer and emphasizing the exhaustion of the mixed-race family under his watchful eye. A drawer-ready plush dwarf is included in the gift-box package. Ages 4–8. (Oct.)
