Book Description: Who ever heard of an elf saving Christmas?
Squidge is a little elf who wants to do what the bigger elves do. When he takes matters into his own hands and causes a disaster in Santa’s workshop, Squidge runs away… and ends up going further than he would ever have dreamt. Can such a little elf save Santa and Christmas?
Mary’s Review: Squidge wants so badly to do grown up things, but keeps being told that he’s too little. Well, he will show them. He sneaks into the workshop and starts the biggest, baddest machine of all and burns it up. Rather than own up to it and face the consequences, he runs and hides. Now begins his adventure of a lifetime resulting in his saving Christmas and learning that it’s okay to make mistakes as long as you are willing to accept the consequences for your actions.
The illustrations are cute and adorable making a wonderful contribution to the story.
I recommend this book for ages 5-8.
