From the Inside Flap
In ELVES CAN'T KICK, Sebastian the elf and his friends Holly the elf and Ralphy the polar bear are on a secret mission to get back Mrs. Claus's baking recipes, stolen by the world-renowned Domestic Diva Bertha Hayworth, who is jealous of Mrs. Claus's sudden success in the Christmas treats business. In the process, Sebastian and the gang help teach a losing soccer team, owned by Hayworth, the recipe for winning teamwork, and impart an important lesson that stealing is wrong to Big Bertha. Robert Skead's other works include Elves Can't Tackle, (September 2004, $7.99, For ages 6 and up), Elves Can't Dunk (September 2000, $5.95, For ages 6 & up), Hitting Glory A Baseball Bat Adventure (Cross Training Publishing, September 2001, $6.99, Youth Fiction) and Safe at Home-A Baseball Card Mystery (Cross Training Publishing, September 1999; $5.95; Youth Fiction).
About the Author
In addition to writing children’s books, Skead also serves the players on the NY/NJ MetroStars as their team chaplain as a staff member of Athletes in Action. It was through this role that Skead and Howard became friends. Athletes in Action is a nonprofit organization that helps professional athletes use their platform in society to be positive role models in their communities. The friendship with Tim Howard soon prompted Skead to be inspired to expand his elves-sports book series (Elves Can’t Dunk and Elves Can’t Tackle) to include soccer and a character named “Howard.” Robert Skead’s other works include Elves Can’t Tackle, (September 2004, $7.99, For ages 6 and up), Elves Can’t Dunk (September 2000, $5.95, For ages 6 & up), Hitting Glory – A Baseball Bat Adventure (Cross Training Publishing, September 2001, $6.99, Youth Fiction) and Safe at Home-A Baseball Card Mystery (Cross Training Publishing, September 1999; $5.95; Youth Fiction).
