Full-spread watercolour illustrations reveal the secret world of the elves and their animal companions.
The second picture book from Daniela Drescher, author and illustrator of In the Land of Fairies.
Full-spread watercolour illustrations reveal the secret world of the elves and their animal companions, in amongst the tree roots and fields. We see them at work and play through the seasons.
'A lovely old-fashioned tale of elves and fairies living in tune with nature, with gorgeous, perfectly-drawn illustrations of a miniature world. Anyone who likes the Flower Fairies will fall in love with this book.'
-- Families Online (www.familiesonline.co.uk/article/articleview/1343/1/175/)
'This short story, written in rhyming couplets, follows the elves through the different seasons. The charming double page illustrations bring alie the secret world of the elves and will enchant any young reader.'
-- Outside In 2005: Children's Books in Translation
'A gentle story... the illustrations are particularly bright, beautiful and very eye-catching. Great attention has been paid to the detail of the natural world. A lovely book for babies too.'
-- Hilary Woolf with Isaac (age 5), Education Otherwise
'This short story, built with rhyming couplets and beautifully illustrated double landscape paintings, records the mysterious and wonderful world of elf activity through the seasons. We see the underground home of the elf queen with huge gemstones and dramatic light, and a wondrous warm morning as elves wake up to springtime. This book will enrich both parent and child!'
-- Juno: A Natural Approach to Family Life, Spring 2005
'Another beautifully illustrated book by Daniela Drescher.'
