Real Elves - Helen Smith

4.5 Stars!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
In a department store in London, a little girl called Sophie visits Santa’s magical forest with her grandfather. As they emerge from the forest, Sophie’s grandfather reports her missing… but the little girl’s right there. Is she a ghost, a twin, an alien abductee—or is there some simpler explanation? Twenty-six-year-old amateur sleuth Emily Castles has fifteen minutes to figure out the puzzle before the police are called and Christmas is ruined.

MY THOUGHTS -
Absolutely adorable! 
This short story was cute, fun, sweet, christmassy, and magical. What more could you want from a Christmas story?
"It would be great if it did transform them," said Selena. "Imagine that. Like if Santa was real. You bring a few naughty kids and walk them through the forest, Santa has a chat with them, and they come out well behaved."
I couldn't put it down, but it is a short story so you are able to read the whole thing without putting it down! Definitely worth the read. I think this would be a fun read for a teen or pre-teen as well! They'll love it! This had me smiling the whole way through.

Thank you Helen for sending me this fun e-book for my honest review!
