About the Author
When he first got to the North Pole he thought the view was spectacular. In the sunny season the fantastic ice formations and the reflections of sunlight through them were something to see. But it never changed, and after a few hundred years anything can become boring. He shook his head and sighed. He was a long way from the woodlands of his youth, where he had nothing on his mind but frolicking and scaring the occasional woodcutter.
Rollo shouldn’t have been staring out the window and thinking about times long gone. It was the busy season, and there was a lot of work to do. He took a sip of coffee and turned to the large computer monitor on his desk.
There was a Facebook message from Jay, asking if they were still on for poker on Thursday. Rollo couldn’t think about that, or anything, until after the delivery. He decided to answer later. He opened reports from his staff. There was a problem in inventory. A whole container of talking Barbies were missing. They had to be in the complex somewhere, but nobody could find them.

Bob's Audible Review
This book is HILARIOUS!!! I laughed almost non-stop while listening to it. Foul-mouthed little elves, vampires, and terrorist reindeer? YES PLEASE! This is AWESOME! The narrator was brilliant. Good pace, and his voice was very pleasant to listen to. His different voices and accents for characters were entertaining, as well. I don't find many true comedies that are MY kind of comedies very often, and this is going to be a re-listen to for me. I fully intend to buy a signed copy of it so that I can read it to myself for when the kids are awake hahaha.
Truly unique story, and I found it to be very well put together. I recommend it to anyone who wants a good laugh and isn't too uptight about language. Second book in a DAY that goes on my top 10 of 2014!
