About the Book

Impish the Elf is not your traditional gift-wrapping elf! Sure, she wraps gifts for Santa to place under the tree, but she never puts nameteags on anything. Rather, Impish leaves her clue-of-the-year in children's stockings to help them discover which presents are whose on Christmas morning! In the second book in the series, Lil' Impish travels the world looking for inspiration in the faces of those children whom she has delighted with her gift-wrapping antics. To which magical lands will she take you this Christmas? She left you the clues...!

About the Author

Amanda McIlwain Hauser makes magical childhood experiences her mission. As a mother of eight children, an elementary teacher, and an author, Amanda spends most of her time creating ways to engage children. Keeping magic a part of childhood has always been her passion. Growing up on a farm in rural Indiana, she spent all her free time crafting, experimenting, creating, imagining, writing, and exploring, and those expressive threads have followed her through all seasons of life. Earning writing awards throughout her childhood, Amanda continued her education at St. Joseph’s College in Rensselaer, Indiana, where she graduated valedictorian of her class with a degree in elementary education. She went on to earn her Master of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Indiana Wesleyan University. After teaching nearly fifteen years in the public classroom, Amanda homeschooled her children with a self-created year-long curriculum that immersed the family in various learning experiences across the United States. But, learning didn’t end during holiday breaks for the Hausers! Impish has visited the family for nearly fifteen years, bringing challenges, clues, and riddles to encourage imagination, collaboration, and excitement on Christmas morning. But, most of all, Impish’s antics heighten the anticipation and magic children feel during this important time of year. In her first book, Impish the Christmas Elf, Amanda began sharing the tradition of the creative gift-wrapping elf with the world. In Impish the Elf: World Traveler, the second book of the Impish series, the world itself is Impish’s clue-of-the-year. Join Amanda and the Hauser family in this unforgettable Christmas gift-giving tradition!
