Discover a funny, festive tale all about finding 'elf confidence and having some 'elf belief!

There's trouble at the North Pole. It's Christmas Eve but there are still so many toys to make and presents to wrap. Smudge, a young elf, tries to help out but the every toy he builds falls apart and each present he wraps looks too messy. Smudge soon grows disheartened - no matter what job he does, nothing seems to work out... Will Smudge discover some 'elf belief and help the elves save Christmas?

This is a beautifully-written festive tale that shows children the true power of having self confidence and self belief, and that being different can be amazing!

With a funny, rhyming story by Lou Treleaven and adorable illustrations by Brenda Figueroa, 'Believe in your Elf' is the perfect story to read and share at Christmas.
