Children's LiteratureIt is raining and Nell is bored. How will she spend her day when she cannot go outside? She wishes for a sibling, a friend, or even a mouse to play with. With crayons and the landscape of imagination, Nell creates an elf who strolls out of a picture frame and into her living room. Nell and her friends throw a party, complete with singing, chocolate chips (straight out of the bag), and plenty of guests. In this magical tale that plays out lyrically on the page, young readers will see Jane Cowen-Fletcher's imaginative response to the childhood dilemma of being bored on a rainy day. With creativity and compassion, Cowen-Fletcher crafts a story that is destined to be a modern classic. The author of the best-selling Baby Angels and Farmer Will, Cowen-Fletcher has once again spun a magical spell upon readers of all ages. 2006, Candlewick Press, Ages 3 to 6.
