Cover of Elfabet by Jane Yolen


This alphabet book stars elves doing a variety of activities. Illustrator Lauren Mills was one of my students at Centrum and I always loved her perfect miniaturist style. When she moved from California east and married Dennis Nolan, another wonderful illustrator, I wrote this book just for her. There’s very little text, and I consider this really an illustrator’s book. There’s a miniature edition which is even more adorable. I have a one-of-a-kind doll that a doll maker made of the F Feather elf that looks exactly like the picture.
