"If you’re looking for a modern take on the traditional fairy tale -- Elfins in San Francisco hits the mark beautifully. This sweet story is a must for boys and girls who have ever lived, visited or wanted to visit San Francisco.

A plus for tired parents: Elfins’ amusing illustrations and story line are just the right length and tone for a toddler’s bed time."-Angelica Pence, Arizona
