In this book things took a turn, or didn't have the typical things that are in a book, which made it even more addicting. This book was what I thought it was fun, exciting and tells a funny Christmas tale. In other ways though, it wasn't what I thought it was going to be. I thought the book was different (but in a good way).
n The Forgotten Helper, there's an elf named Aven. Although he's the oldest, he's the fastest and full of dangerous but also funny mischief. One Christmas Eve, Aven gets left behind. He gets left at a little girl's house. He is forced to live there in her attic. Aven assumes he will stay there until Santa comes back the next year.
When he sees the little girl's, Ivy, behavior that might change he thinks. He's afraid he might never see the North Pole again. So will Aven be able to change Ivy's behavior or somehow get past the vicious dog next door at the nicest kid's house. The nice kid's name is Osgood, get it?
I absolutely love this book. It was addicting with wonderful description and beautiful story telling. I have to say the author, Lorrie Moore, did a great job on everything. I also have to say that the illustrator did a wonderful job illustrating the thoughts of the words and descriptions.
