magic and unexpected friendship,
By A Customer
This review is from: Afternoon of the Elves (Library Binding)
Hillary is an average girl, but her neighbor Sara-Kate is a strange person. Her clothing is always old and ill-fitting, and her back yard is the opposite of Hillary's neatly planted one. When Sara-Kate invites Hillary to come see the work of elves in her yard, it is surprising. Hillary has never thought of Sara-Kate as someone she'd like to be friends with. As the friendship grows, Hillary loses her skepticism about the elves, but she wonders about Sara-Kate. Why isn't she allowed to explore Sara-Kate's house? Why hasn't she been introduced to her parents? What is it that the elves see in Sara-Kate's messy yard? Hillary learns about friendship and helping people in this light enjoyable read.
