Elf in the House

author: Ammi-Joan Paquette
illustrator: Adam Record

Follow a child on a most magical Christmas Eve night as she looks for the source of the sound that woke her up. In a lively, cumulative story full of page-turn reveals, all is not what it seems. While the little girl searches the house, she encounters some unexpected new friends. But the biggest surprise is sure to come last!

“The duo behind Ghost in the House reunites for a jaunty blend of cumulative holiday tale, counting book, and onomatopoeic celebration.” — Publishers Weekly
