Nell's Elf Hardcover – March 14, 2006
From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 2-A little girl's imagination allows her to overcome the boredom of a rainy day and bring her dreams to life. Nell wishes that she had someone to play with. She draws an elf who comes to life and says, There is no excuse for being bored. He convinces her to create a party full of little elf friends and they sing and dance and eat chocolate chips. The beige and golden tones used in many of the colored pencil, pastel, and gouache illustrations give them the feeling of a time gone by. The red-and-white polk-dotted endpapers introduce a pattern that is carried throughout the book, from tables and toadstools to Nell's jacket and pointed elfin hats. Not a must-buy title, but a nice choice for quiet sharing with a child who loves to live in the imagination.-Genevieve Gallagher, Murray Elementary School, Charlottesville, VA
