Dizzy, the Stowaway Elf: Santa's Izzy Elves #3 Paperback – October 3, 2013
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...into her lively tale about a stowaway elf. -Kirkus Reviews
About the Author
New Hampshire author Dorothea Johnson Jensen was born in Boston. As a child, she moved to Chillicothe, Illinois, the same town where Johnston McCulley, the writer who created Zorro, lived many years earlier. Jensen majored in English Literature (Carleton College) and earned an M.A. in Education (University of New Mexico). She has served in the Peace Corps in South America, tutored refugees in ESL, taught junior high and high school English, and written grant proposals for arts organization. She and her husband have three grown children and six grandsons, and have lived all over the United States, as well as in Brazil and The Netherlands. Jensen's first historical novel for young readers, The Riddle of Penncroft Farm, was named an International Reading Association Teachers' Choices Selection soon after publication. It is used in classrooms throughout the U.S. as an enrichment resource for studying the American Revolution. Jensen's second historical novel for young readers, A Buss from Lafayette, was released in 2016 and has won a number of honors and awards since its publication in 2016. It concerns a witty, troubled young girl whose life might just be changed by a playful kiss from a great hero of the American Revolution. With a colleague, Sienna Larson, Jensen has written a complete teacher’s guide for A Buss from Lafayette. This makes it easy to use this story in the classroom to enrich study of the Revolution, General Lafayette, and life in the early 19th century. Jensen is now working on a story set in 17th century Massachusetts, called A Scalp on the Moon. Tizzy, the Christmas Shelf Elf was Jensen's first illustrated story in verse for elementary school-aged children. She has now completed three sequels: Blizzy, the Worrywart Elf, Dizzy, the Stowaway Elf, and Frizzy, the S.A.D. Elf. Modeled on the classic poem, "A Visit from St. Nicholas", these all feature decidedly 21st century elves and have won honors/awards. She plans to write a story for each of the remaining Izzy Elves: Bizzy, Whizzy, Fizzy, and Quizzy. In addition to writing, Jensen is an experienced actress and singer.Jensen is enjoying putting her old acting skills creating video blogs and podcasts, and narrating her stories. Her four Izzy Elf stories and A Buss from Lafayette are now available as audiobooks.
