About the Book

Impish is Santa’s #1 gift-wrapping elf, but she has giant antics up her tricky elf sleeve. What began as a ploy to brighten the long, dark winters at the North Pole, developed into a grand gift-wrapping tradition. Impish replaces conventional name tags with thematic clues-of-the-year, and when, on Christmas morning, children wake to find her carefully crafted clues in their stockings, the fun begins. In the third book in the series, Lil’ Impish is struck with a case of creator’s block and searches for a taste of genius in the large candy kitchens tucked deep below the North Pole. It is there she finds an unlikely friend and some very sweet inspiration. This Christmas, get ready to open more than gifts under the tree... unwrap a really BIG treat!

About the Author

Amanda McIlwain Hauser keeps magic a part of childhood! As a mother to eight children, an elementary school teacher, and an author, designing and delivering engaging and enchanting childhood experiences is not just a job; it's a passion. Growing up on a farm in rural Indiana, Amanda spent her free time crafting, experimenting, creating, writing, and exploring... the cornerstone of a life spent doing and growing. Graduating valedictorian of her college class with a degree in elementary education and then earning a master of education degree in curriculum and instruction, the desire to serve children led her to the public classroom where she taught over fifteen years. During a short respite to raise her small children, Amanda revisited the expressive threads of childhood and immersed her family in various learning experiences through a self-created homeschooling curriculum that journeyed her family across the entire United States. It was then that Amanda embarked upon a new endeavor, sharing her family's magical holiday experiences through a new children's picture book series. Based on her own Christmas traditions and rooted in foundational educational design elements, Impish the Elf is not merely a book series; it is an engaging tradition. For nearly two decades, Impish has visited the Hauser family... bringing challenges, clues, and riddles to encourage imagination, collaboration, and excitement on Christmas morning. Whereas some North Pole elves label presents with name tags, Impish replaces them with thematic clues. Her antics heighten the anticipation and magic children feel during the holiday season. In her first book, Impish the Christmas Elf, Amanda shared the tradition of the creative gift-wrapping elf with the world. In Impish the Elf: World Traveler, the world itself is Impish's clue-of-the-year. And now, the fun continues with Impish the Elf: Confection Perfection. Join Amanda and the Hauser family in this unforgettable holiday gift-giving tradition. Visit
