A little elf's clandestine adventure as a stowaway on Santa's sleigh takes an unexpected turn in an engaging contemporary spin on the classic 19th-century poem, "A Visit from St. Nicholas"...The author propels her present-day take on the classic Christmas poem with gentle humor and suspense, smoothly incorporating lines from the original poem into her lively tale about a stowaway elf.—Kirkus Reviews

 The Best Santa's Izzy Elves Book Yet!

If you haven't read this series, you are missing out! The Izzy Elves are awesome, and the Dizzy story is really our family favorite so far.


These books are rich in plot and language, reflect the lives and loves of kids today, and keep the fun and anticipation and magic of Christmas alive and going. While I do love the classics at Christmas time, I have to say, my kids prefer these!


A great gift for yourself or others. 5 Stars

All of her Books are Great

[Younger Kids]. . .Will Like the Bright Pictures and Rhythm of the Story

"This is a cute, different Christmas book about an elf who hides on Santa's sleigh to have an adventure. It follows the rhythm of "The Night Before Christmas" so it is fun to read. Between the word count and some of the difficult words (to keep the rhythm and rhyme), the story may be better suited to middle elementary aged kids. If you have younger kids, they will like the bright pictures and rhythm of the story." 4 STARS –Goodreads Reviewer


A Wonderful Book

This is a wonderful book and I am going to look into buying the previous books in the series. This would make a wonderful addition to a Christmas bedtime story collection. I think this book is perfect for preschool children but older children would certainly enjoy it as well. 4.5 STARS —Goodreads Review

Might Become a Family Favorite

Her rhyming story about an elf on Christmas eve is excellent for ages 8 to forever, as it tells a great story about Santa and the mishaps naughty children can make happen. It might become a family favorite. . . Suitable for middle-grade readers or can be read aloud to younger children.—Connie Huddleston


Adorable Book

 "This is an adorable book for your kids to read. Ours just loved it." 5 STARS –Goodreads Reviewer

A Fun Story Line

"What a cute story. This book has adorable illustrations and a fun story line about an elf who sneaks in to Santa's sleigh. We read this book with my 3-year-old and quite a few of the words were over her head. This book is definitely for an older child. We enjoyed the book, nonetheless, and will certainly read more of Dorothea Jensen's books in the future." 4 STARS –Goodreads Reviewer
