Book Review: Steve the Christmas Elf by Billy Dunne & Ben Whitehouse @Buster_books @KellyALacey @lovebookstours

A humorous and heart-warming story about a little elf who stops believing in the magic of Christmas and a little girl called May, who help each other find their way.
Steve the Christmas elf is in the North Pole, busy making toys for the big day. But he suddenly wonders: what if the children he’s making toys for don’t exist? Well, it’s not like he’s ever seen them…
Join Steve on a Christmas Eve adventure as he sneaks on board Santa’s sleigh, befriends a little girl who’s found herself on the naughty list and gets himself into a whole load of festive trouble.

My thoughts

There’s nothing better than a children’s Christmas book and the look of excitement on your child’s face as they read it to get you in the Christmas spirit and Steve the Christmas Elf did just that for us.

I’ve lost track of how many times we’ve read this story now, it seems to have managed to become part of the bedtime routine for my little 3 year old now and I’m not complaining at all.

The illustrations in this story are spectacular, the colours are so bright and eye catching and every page had Darcy saying “oh look at that” over and over again as she spied something new.

Steve the Christmas Elf is a rhyming story and it’s really so much fun. Darcy thought it was hilarious that the little elf’s name is Steve the same as her Daddy and big brother.

This would make a fantastic gift, if Darcy wasn’t already obsessed with the book it would have been great to put in her Christmas Eve box but I think by then she’ll know it off by heart.

A gorgeous little story filled with festive mischief.
