It’s been snowing here more or less constantly since December, and as the
drifts hit six feet the Book Elves collectively threw their snow shovels
aside and announced that it was a grand time to go sledding. The only
problem with this otherwise engaging idea was that all the sleds had been
destroyed last July in the Great Goat-Sled Rodeo Disaster. Where the
stupi-, er, imaginative idea of substituting kayaks for sleds came from
has now been lost, and perhaps it’s better that way.

So up to the top of Mt. Crumpet, um, Mt. Tom, the Book Elves trudged with
their fleet of Kayaks, in a real-life “Paddle to the Sea” moment. And in
fact, that may be where they ended up, because ever since they slid back
down Mt. Tom in the general direction of the Connecticut River, nobody has
seen a trace of them. Or the kayaks. Or ten cases of beer that we had been
storing for our Super Bowl party.

But before the Book Elves launched themselves down the icy mountain slope
of fame or disaster, they finished our latest catalog-
