9780060394141: Mick Foley's Christmas Chaos

The elves were running everywhere--they were loud and brash and rude, and Tommy Top, the tallest elf, was running in the nude.

The elves were throwing toys and games, and to make things even worse, Billy Bop, the smallest elf, was teaching them to curse...

What does Santa do when things get out of hand in his North Pole castle? He brings in the World Wrestling Federation Superstars!

Mick Foley's Christmas Chaos is a hilarious modern classic with all the heartwarming magic of a cherished tradition. Riotously illustrated by Jerry "The King" Lawler, this new Christmas story is sure to delight children, wrestling fans, and readers of all ages. Make room on the shelf next to The Night Before Christmas and A Christmas Carol, because this Yuletide tale has attitude!

Mick Foley--number one New York Times bestselling author, Hardcore Legend, and Commissioner of the World Wrestling Federation--crafts a delightful tale of mischief, mayhem, and the true meaning of Christmas. When the elves revolt against Santa and refuse to make any toys and the reindeer gang up on Rudolph as though they've joined DX, Santa Claus gives up hope that anyone these days has the true Christmas spirit. When the situation looks its bleakest, Mrs. Claus calls in the cavalry--Kane, Jericho, Val Venis, Jerry Lawler, Kurt Angle, Edge, an the rest of the Federation Superstars!

How the wrestlers misbehave--making things even worse--and how one unexpected and unassuming person saves Christmas for the whole world is an unforgettable and uplifting story that will add good cheer to your holiday season year after year.

Perfect for reading out loud near a crackl8ing fire or while tucked in at bedtime, Mick Foley's Christmas Chaos is sure to become a family tradition in your home.

Review:

Things are getting hairy for heavyweight present-delivering champion of the world Santa Claus in Mick Foley's Christmas Chaos. The elves are making like South Park miscreants, mooning the boss, talking trash, and watching Raw Is War on TV instead of working. Seven reindeer are having a "schmozz" (free-for-all) against Rudolph, resentful of his song royalties and uppity attitude. Cupid just "nailed poor Rudolph's nose with a People's Hoof," Rudolph threatens to send Santa to jail, and Santa wants to go on strike.

But Mrs. Claus saves the day by calling in those elfin fellows, the World Wrestling Federation Superstars. Santa cheers right up--even though, "for the first time in his life, / A Superstar had mistletoe and tried to kiss his wife." The holiday doggerel by WWF star and bestselling author Mick Foley is fairly amusing, and the colorful illustrations by wrestling announcer Jerry "The King" Lawler are surprisingly good. His Mad-like caricature of Mick captures the man's missing-teeth grin and raffish mien at least as well as Yellow Submarine evoked the Beatles.

Parents, don't fret: the scariest picture is Rudolph with a nosebleed, and all bad language is rendered thus: "bleep bleep." The cruelest line in the book is this: "One child wanted Al Snow's Best Matches, though no such tape existed." Henceforth, we'll all just have to refer to the noted arm-twister turned author as "good saint Mick." --Tim Appelo
