Tired of remaining an unsung - so to speak - icon of the holiday season in spite of her best efforts, Jingle defies her father's "no publicity" edict and creates an animated TV special with her elfin friends. But before it hits the airwaves, Jing must overcome new adversaries ... contemporary TV executives! Next, determined to prove herself worthy of the Claus legacy, Jingle leaves the North Pole to take over a struggling Santaland amusement park. Little does the mild-mannered owner realize, though, that the "revitalization" will result in an over-the-top, Vegas-style Christmas casino! And what's an elf-girl to do when the local mob tries to horn in on the action? Raise the stakes, that's what! In addition to vignettes from Jing's past boyfriends, this also includes short stories illustrated by J. Bone and Stephanie Gladden, featuring other characters Paul Dini has created - such as Sheriff Ida Red of Mutant Texas!

Paul Dini a five- time Emmy award- winning writer, producer, and cartoonist. He has worked on Batman animated series.From Booklist:
With flash and flair, Santa's eternally teenage daughter, Jingle Belle, along with her flying musk ox, Thrasher, and a host of North Pole regulars make Christmas cool. Sick of her unknown status in the holiday-icon pantheon, she devises ways to make her mark on the Christmas scene. Attempts to create a new cartoon classic, complete with Rankin-Bass-style puppets, are thwarted once TV execs get their hands on the project. Turning the declining Santaville park into a wildly successful -Christmas-theme casino seems like a good idea, but all goes awry when the local Mob boss wants a cut of the action. Add a sweet vignette showing some of Jingle's past boyfriends and a holiday special featuring Sheriff Ida Red of Mutant Texas, and you have a holiday classic in the making. The art--sly and loaded with little homages to animation greats like Tex Avery--and the storytelling mesh seamlessly to evoke Jingle's humor and charm. With twice the caffeine and half the saccharine of most holiday specials, this is worthy of year-round shelf space. Tina Coleman
