The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is a lyrical and delicately told story of Yorsh, an elf who sets off on an adventure with a dog and the two humans who own it. Full of delightful incidents, this a magical story of survival despite all kinds of disasters – including the weather!

Heart-warming and truly original, this wonderful novel brings to readers an utterly charming character whose innocence and style are irresistible.

Synopsis

Last Elf by Silvana De Mari

Yorsh, the Elf finds himself in the unlikely company of two humans and their pet dog. Humans and elves do not get on! But stranger things in the world are happening with the endless rain, the floods and the ensuing disasters. When Yorsh happens upon a prophecy in a cave, he realises that his journey will have an even greater significance than being simply his attempt to avoid the weather! Heart-warming and truly original, this wonderful novel brings to readers an utterly charming character whose innocence and style are irresistible.
