The Wildwood Elves
by Anne-Marie Chapouton
The little elves decide to go on a trip to the seaside. They pack up the carts, and harness the mice for the journey. They stop for a picnic along the way. When they arrive at the sea, they are amazed at how big and salty it is. They discover shells, seaweed, and crabs. They build a sandcastle. When it is time to go home, they harvest some seaweed and take home a few of the biggest shells to serve as bathtubs.
This book is so cute! All the little elves are adorable and so smart. I love that there are so many characters with specific jobs; Polly the potter, Oliver the chef, Betty the baker, and Tessie the teacher! They make such a merry company as they travel together.
I love the sweet details in the illustrations. There are so many tiny little elements in each scene, right down to the clothing of the elves, that make the art work really special. Every page is so beautiful, I could just stare at it for hours looking for all the little things.
This book is magical! Every page is full of enchantment and joy.
