The Elf 'N Trees Review

Adventure Stories Family / Home Stories Featured Books for 5+ readers Featured Books for 7+ readers

'The Elf 'N Trees' is a charming Christmas story but contains universal lessons applicable throughout the year. Written by Ellena Waskett-Burt and illustrated by husband Andrew, it is inspired by and dedicated to the couple's two daughters.

Elf 'n trees are the little people who are trained to live in your Christmas tree throughout the festive season, changing blown light bulbs, tweaking decorations and generally spreading Christmas magic all around the house whilst remaining out of sight, especially of cats!

Leafy is one such elf but she is having trouble passing her final test before she can 'go solo'. She enlists the help of her friend, Crinkly, and next time passes with flying colours. Leafy is able to return the favour very soon, when Crinkly is too late to find a tree of his own when they go on sale. The two friends soon discover that sharing a tree is twice as much fun and they go on to make sure that the little girls in the house they end up in enjoy the best Christmas ever!

A really delightful story, colourfully illustrated, shows the power of friendship and co-operation. This unlikely pairing works because it's based on mutual understanding and respect and Santa's secret is safe with these two enterprising elf 'n trees. A wonderful addition to a young child's stocking.
