Maybe you can find elves!

— Five Books Reviewed in Five Words


There's no such thing as elves... right?

When a little boy is told by his best friend that elves aren't real, he doesn't believe it for a second. In true Christmas fashion, he makes a list of places to search, checks it twice, and sets off to prove his friend wrong.

From the garden to the candy store to the Christmas fair, he looks for elves everywhere. Could his best friend be right? Or are elves hiding just out of sight?

With an engaging search and find element on every page, this story is packed full of Christmas fun for kids to enjoy. The bouncy, rhyming text makes for the perfect read-aloud and Katy Halford's adorable art gives kids plenty to explore.

A new holiday tale that's sure to become a family favorite!
