I’m the Dwarf in the Drawer,
And I lived here before . . .
Before that darn elf—
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.
