‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

In the Land of the Elves
by Daniela Drescher
Age Range: Under_5
As springtime arrives the elves leave their shelter to come outside and join their animal companions, working and collecting food as well as playing amongst the roots and trees. This short story, written in rhyming couplets, follows the lives of the elves through the different seasons, from spring, through summer, autumn and finally winter, when they return to the warmth of their shelter while they wait for the spring to return again. The charming, double page illustrations bring alive the secret world of the elves and will enchant any young reader.
