Helpful Elves (hardcover)
When the lazy people of Cologne go to sleep, the helpful elves do their work. They measure and saw for the carpenter, knead and mix for the baker, carve and chop for the butcher, taste and pour for the winemaker, and snip and sew for the tailor. However, no one ever sees them until one day the tailor's wife becomes curious. This classic picture book is based on a poem by August Kopisch who brought it to life with humorous illustrations by Beatrice Braun-Fock. Printed on thick, quality paper, The Helpful Elves features delightful cut-outs on every page of each of the elves' heads. For ages 3-6.
