It's Christmas Eve and Spark Elf has the very important job of keeping Santa Claus on schedule as he travels the globe in 24 hours delivering presents. Small in stature with pointy ears and stopwatch in hand, Spark lets Santa know it's time to go. He programs the GPS while the other elves secure the toy bag and check the Nice list. Little known fact: We don't even bring the Naughty list with us. Six hours into the trip Santa, sleigh and crew begin to fall behind--so many cuddly doggies to pet and extra cookies to eat. The jolly group makes up time in Brazil and soon find themselves back at the North Pole. Their work is done. But wait, there's something left in the bag--but it isn't a present at all--it's a family dog! Well known fact: Santa gives things away. He does not take things! Momma Claus comes to the rescue with a plan to get the dog back to his family. Can Santa return the family's beloved pooch in time to keep their Christmas merry?

This book is Christmas from an Elf's perspective. He gives you the rundown of Christmas Eve and what it takes to get the presents delivered including pulling Santa away from the oh so fun little train he just set up for a child, and taking the time to eat all of the goodies left out for Santa. The story is spiced with little known facts about Santa: He doesn't like gingersnaps, and plenty of "Elfies" taken by the narrating Elf. The sleigh arrives at the North Pole after a job well done. But the crew finds a stow away dog. They must figure out how to get the dog back home because without him Christmas for that family will not happen.

This book is written with plenty of cute quips that keeps the story moving along quickly. I love the "Elfies" and the well-known facts about Santa. I also love how Santa stops every chance he gets to have a little bit of fun.

This is an adorable Christmas story with a new perspective that children of all ages would love. The illustrations are colorful and adorable. I highly recommend it.
