On behalf of Gabriel the Elf, welcome and thank you so much for stopping by. He was here just a minute ago, but Gladys the Reindeer turned up and now they've both disappeared - nothing new there!

Please do have a good look around the site and check back and see if I've managed to find them...

I really loved this book The Christmas Present.  It has a really catchy name. I would recommend it to 7-13 year olds.  It is so gripping that I couldn’t put it down until I’d read it all.  I would rate it 10 stars if possible – best book ever.  It is sad and funny but the best book I have ever read. I love the idea of traveling in a snow globe.

The Christmas Present

Did you know that at the very moment you were born Mrs Claus allocated you an elf? It's true! Your very own elf who watches to see when you have been naughty and nice. Every year, just before Christmas, your elf reports to Santa and Mrs Claus so they can decide what presents you can have from your list.

Yet there are some people who don't believe in Santa. I know, it's crazy...but it's true! Once they stop believing in Santa, then their elf is banished from the North Pole and only allowed to return when they start believing in him again.

Gabriel the Elf is worried. His child is beginning to think that Santa isn't real. He doesn't want to be sent away from all his friends at the North Pole, but what can he do? There is only one thing he can do...

He must prove Santa is real.
