  • Review Quotes



    "A scheming story of how to catch a Christmas elf told in playful rhyme that makes it an instant modern classic." - BookRiot

    "With delightful rhymes, How to Catch an Elf slots itself into place along such classics as "The Night Before Christmas." Of course, there's some updated technology, such as the Elf Snatcher 3000. Its cute language is great for reading aloud and the pictures are sure to get a giggle. Daring escapes and goofy traps make the story great fun. With hijinks galore, kids may just come up with some new ways to capture Santa's little helper" - Foreword Reviews
