Description

Jane Cowen-Fletcher's cheerful tale about the delights of the imagination reminds us it doesn't take much to keep boredom at bay.

It's raining, it's pouring, and Nell is bored, bored, bored. She has no one to play with and nothing to do! But with the help of some crayons - and a vivid imagination - Nell conjures up the perfect friend to spice up a dull day.

In this fanciful tale full of old-fashioned storybook charm, Nell and her very own elf beat the rainy-day blues by throwing an elf party, complete with fantastic magical guests, plenty of singing and dancing, and feasting on chocolate chips right out of the bag.
