For generations, children have been told the story of the jolly fat man named Santa Claus, who on every Christmas Eve loads up his sleigh with toys and goodies, and with the help of his magical flying reindeer delivers them to all the deserving boys and girls around the world. But very little has ever been told or written about Santa's partners in gift-giving—the Elves—who lovingly and unselfishly busy themselves the remaining 364 days of the year building those wonderful gifts. What are their names? Where do they come from? How did they come to be with Santa at the North Pole? Why are they such gifted toy builders? Why do they do it? Elphland - The Story of Santa's Elves answers those and many other questions. And in so doing, explains the very origins of Santa Claus' gift-giving journey every Christmas Eve. Elphland is the first of a series of books about the Elphland Elves and how they overcame prejudice and adversity in their ancestral home by giving of themselves while expecting nothing in return. And in the end won over the love and respect not only of those who tormented them for years, but of the whole wide world.
