Klappentext

< div> Santa's elves are tired of being third-rate drones in his oppressive sweatshop. The labor is backbreaking and the greedy Santa and his crotchety CFO, Mrs. Claus, have worn their patience thin. They're mad as hell and they're not going to take it anymore. In this hilarious poke at modern Christmas mythology, Santa's not-so-cheery little toy-makers act more like disgruntled postal workers when they plot to overthrow their boss, smash the factory, and turn the reindeer into reindeer stew. There'll be nothing under the tree for one and all, unless little children agree to help crush their portly oppressors with a little merry activism. Subversive and dark, but also fun and cathartic, this illustrated workplace satire will bring the gift of ho-ho-ho to any disaffected office worker.< /div>

Zusammenfassung

Burn, Christmas! Burn! is a humorous Christmas book about Santa’s Elves who are tired of being third-rate drones in his oppressive sweatshop. 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 labor have finally done in the Elve's patience. They've reached boiling point. They're mad as hell and not going to take it anymore. What to do?
Well, overthrow Christmas, of course. Thus the Elve's plot: to turn the reindeer into raindeer stew (guided into the reindeer stables by Rudolph's nose); booby-trap the children's presents; smash Santa's factory.
Unless...all the little children (naughty, nice, who cares!) agree to send demands for elfin freedom to Santa, instead of their wish lists...
This book incorporates many beloved Christmas tales only to turn them on their head. Or knock their heads together.
