Synopsis


Blizzy, Tizzy's "favorite lass", is the only elf who notices that Tizzy is missing on Christmas morning.

What Blizzy REALLY is, however, is very, very clever, and she just might figure out the mystery!

Amazing Work by Ms. Jensen

...It was a really cute story. I loved how the story was written in rhyme. Amazing work by Ms. Jensen. I was very impressed...Now I have to go out and get the other stories about the other elves because it's that cute. 4 STARS

Wonderful Storyline

The storyline for this book is wonderful. What a great story, particularly for young kids that are developing friendships and beginning to explore what it means to be a friend and care about a friend. There is lots of Izzy Elves mystery and adventure as in the first book, and this one takes the character development to another level! 5 STARS
–Goodreads Reviewer


Very Well Written

This book is written in verse and very well written for the holiday season. The pictures also compliment the text perfectly...Now I'm definitely interested in the rest of her Izzy books! 5 STARS
