Editorial Reviews

"A scheming story of how to catch a Christmas elf told in playful rhyme that makes it an instant modern classic." - BookRiot

"With delightful rhymes, How to Catch an Elf slots itself into place along such classics as "The Night Before Christmas." Of course, there's some updated technology, such as the Elf Snatcher 3000. Its cute language is great for reading aloud and the pictures are sure to get a giggle. Daring escapes and goofy traps make the story great fun. With hijinks galore, kids may just come up with some new ways to capture Santa's little helper" - Foreword Reviews

A cute little Christmas story. The book arrived quickly and in perfect condition
J. SmithPeter Dawson
Ignoring the lack of story line and the dreadful attempts at rhyme, there is simply too much violence for a book for small children and certainly not at Christmas. We want feel good stuff at this time of year. I hadn't realised that it was an Americanised text so British children won't know what a touche is etc. I was looking for cheap children's books to give out at a party. So desperately let down by this that it went straight in the charity bag to donate but was worried about even doing that as I feel it's inappropriate.
