Margaret Ogren, February 5, 2008 (view all comments by Margaret Ogren)
In this wonderful book about cliques, friendship, honesty and poverty, two very different girls begin a tenuous friendship. Both girls and boys will be fascinated with the intricate elf-village created from rocks, leaves and found items. The book runs deep. Terrific for ages 8 to 12.
