“This short story, written in rhyming couplets, follows the elves through the different seasons. The charming double-page illustrations bring to life the secret world of the elves and will enchant any young reader.” —Outside In: Children’s Books in Translation

“A gentle story... the illustrations are particularly bright, beautiful and very eye-catching. Great attention has been paid to the detail of the natural world. A lovely book for babies, too.” —Hilary Woolf with Isaac (age 5), Education Otherwise

“This short story, built with rhyming couplets and beautifully illustrated double landscape paintings, records the mysterious and wonderful world of elf activity through the seasons. We see the underground home of the elf queen with huge gemstones and dramatic light, and a wondrous warm morning as elves wake up to springtime. This book will enrich both parent and child!” —Juno: A Natural Approach to Family Life
