THE ELVES ARE MAKING MOLOTOV COCKTAILS INSTEAD OF PRESENTS IN THIS HILARIOUSLY GRIM TAKE ON CHRISTMAS TRADITION The perfect antidote to the sometimes insufferable 'Christmas cheer' that permeates the season. Lavishly illustrated and truly original, this book offers a welcome catharsis for all those disillusioned realists. A humorous Christmas book centring on the oppressive sweatshop that Santa runs and the elves who stage a revolution. Santa is greedy and old Mrs Claus is the crotchety and mean CFO. And Rudolph? He's got a score to settle too. Years of backbreaking labour have finally done in the elves' patience, they've reached boiling point and are mad as hell. So they decide to overthrow Christmas. They plot to turn the reindeer into reindeer stew (guided to the stables by Rudolph's nose); booby trap the children's presents; and smash up Santa's factory. That is unless all the little children (naughty and nice) agree to send demands for elfin freedom to Santa instead of their wish lists. This book incorporates many Christmas tales only to turn them on their head and is lavishly illustrated with slyly iniquitous images.
