it was ok
bookshelves: picture-book

Every year on December 1st our family opens a new Christmas book to add to our collection. This year it was Elf on the Shelf...and it was received with very mixed reactions. One child thought the elf was extremely creepy and didn't want it sitting around the house, another child spent the evening examining the little elf doll and wondering how it could fly and what would happen if it got wet and what if a bird ate it, and the last child was indifferent about the whole thing. The actual writing is not very remarkable and I didn't care for the illustrations at all. The concept is cute and would probably work best for young children. Not sure what all the big hype is about...
