“In the land of elves, a princess elf waits patiently in her sparkling cave for the first signs of spring.”

In the magical land of elves, every season is special. Helpful and kind elves play in the spring sunshine, make a wish on a summer night, harvest autumn berries and care for their animal friends in the winter snow.

This vibrant picture book will captivate young readers with its luminous illustrations and gentle evocative words. In the Land of Elves is a classic picture book from bestselling illustrator Daniela Drescher, and a delightful companion to In the Land of Fairies and In the Land of Mermaids.

(Ages 3 to 6 Years)
