About the Author
Dr. David Charney is a psychiatrist. When he was in medical school, he first conceived his idea for a song based on reimagining the beloved holiday song’s chorus, “Noel! Noel!” He transformed it into “No elves! No elves!” What a promising start for a story! But Dr. Charney’s busy practice life kept him from moving past his initial idea for literally decades. One fine day, he finally decided, “Enough’s enough; I’ve got to write this song!” And it took him just one day; it almost wrote itself.
When he was finally finished, he realized he also wrote a children’s book! After a ton of work (try creating illustrations—even with help— when you’re not an artist), the book is available now as an E-Book and as a Paperback from Amazon. Shortly, it will be available as a Hardback version. And what about the song? It was produced at a professional recording studio with a small Children’s’ Chorus and will be accessible from the Author’s Website, which is accessible from the book using a QR code. The book and song are finally out together! Hope you and your kids enjoy!
