Diary of a Wimpy Elf by Renae Brumbaugh

If you're a kid and want to know the truth about elves at the North Pole, you need to read this book. You'll read through Kirby's revealing diary. He is an elf who is ready to enlighten you.

You'll read about Kirby and his job of taking care of the smelly reindeer. You'll read about Bert and Elrod, a couple of elves who are full of mischief and like to play pranks on Kirby. Those elves find out what it's like to have pranks played on them when Santa gives an assignment to the leprechauns.

This is a fun little story. Who would have thought that reindeer like Rice Krispy treats and chocolate or strawberry milk in their troughs? The illustrations are cute and there is a good moral to the story too. Bert and Elrod learn a good lesson about kindness to others.

I'm not sure about the age of readers this book is designed for. Kirby has a girlfriend and there is talk of “going steady.” Other than that, this is a cute book for kids. The elves go to church so there is that positive influence too. I enjoyed it.

My rating: 5/5 stars.

Renae Brumbaugh is the author of several books and has been on the ECPA Bestseller list twice. She has written hundreds of articles and won awards for her humor. You can find out more at
