Jane Cowen-Fletcher's cheerful tale about the delights of the imagination reminds us it doesn't take much to keep boredom at bay. It's raining, it's pouring, and Nell is bored, bored, bored. She has one to play with and thing to do! But with the help of some crayons - and a vivid imagination - Nell conjures up the perfect friend to spice up a dull day. In this fanciful tale full of old-fashioned storybook charm, Nell and her very own elf beat the rainy-day blues by throwing an elf party, complete with fantastic magical guests, plenty of singing and dancing, and feasting on chocolate chips right out of the bag.
JANE COWEN-FLETCHER says, When I was a child, there were many elves in my life, always just out of view. In the process of illustrating this book, I have lured them into view (with chocolate chips), and have finally had the elf party I've longed for all these years. I encourage every reader to pick up pencil or crayon and draw out the elves hiding inside of you. It may take a while for them to spring to life, but with all that drawing, I promise you will never, ever be bored!
