The Book Elves love a good New Year’s Eve bash, and surprisingly 
(shockingly) everything went well this year. The dancers and levitating 
tigers all performed without a hitch, nobody called the fire department 
when the bonfire flames soared above treetop level, the fireworks went 
off when (and where) they were supposed to- and nobody from Homeland 
Security or the FBI showed up to investigate the debris field 
afterwards. It was, in short, a completely successful party, a feat 
which is unpresidented in Book Elf history. Even the singer stayed away 
from the Book Elves ‘funny brownies’ long enough to perform a flawless 
set. Her equipment even all worked, which was really surprising, since 
the Book Elves bought it dirt-cheap off the back of a truck in New York 
last week (it was much-used and all stenciled “Property of M. Carey”).

But before they pulled off a great party without any harm to anyone, the 
Book Elves finished our latest catalog-
