In the early 1800s, Nicholas, Jessica, and Jon Santa attempt the first human trek to the North Pole and stumble upon an ancient race of people left over from the Ice Age. They are short, fat, and hairy. They slide across the ice on scaly soles and carve their homes in the ice that floats on the Arctic Ocean. The elven are adapted to life in the extreme cold. They are as wise as they are ancient. Their scientific advancements have yielded great inventions - time-stopping devices and gravitational spheres that build living snowmen and genetically-modified reindeer that leap great distances.
Sura is sixteen years old when she meets Mr. Frost. He's very short and very fat and he likes his room very, very cold. Some might say inhumanly cold. His first name isn't Jack, she's told. And that's all she needed to know. Mr. Frost's love for Christmas is over-the-top and slightly psychotic. And why not? He's made billions of dollars off the holiday he invented. Or so he claims. Rumor is he's an elven, but that's silly. Elven aren't real. And if they were, they wouldn't live in South Carolina.

Daniel Donatelli's literary debut, Music Made by Bears, combines beautifully written prose with a multilayered, thematic story that challenges readers to reflect on the meaning, purpose, and depth of life. A seemingly endless canvas of descriptive natural imagery provides the setting for this linguistically melodic novel, which takes place in an isolated religious community whose long-sought seclusion and harmony are disrupted by the arrival of two mirrored opposites - one invited, and one not.
