Story Time with Impish the Elf

Join us for Story Time with Impish the Elf! Impish the Elf: Confection Perfection, the third book in the Impish series, is out now and you get a personal reading with the author, Amanda McIlwain Hauser. You also get a chance to purchase a signed copy of the book at our event! 

About the Book: Impish is Santa’s #1 gift-wrapping elf, but she has giant antics up her tricky elf sleeve. What began as a ploy to brighten the long, dark winters at the North Pole, developed into a grand gift-wrapping tradition. Impish replaces conventional name tags with thematic clues-of-the-year, and when, on Christmas morning, children wake to find her carefully crafted clues in their stockings, the fun begins. In the third book in the series, Lil’ Impish is struck with a case of creator’s block and searches for a taste of genius in the large candy kitchens tucked deep below the North Pole. It is there she finds an unlikely friend and some very sweet inspiration. This Christmas, get ready to open more than gifts under the tree… unwrap a really BIG treat!
