About this title


Bob is untidy, Bob eats baked beans for dinner every night, Bob is happy. Until one awful morning when he awakes to a spotless house and an infestation of house elves. He and the elves share very different views on housekeeping. A humorous account of the benefits of compromise for young children.


Bob and the House Elves tells the sorry tale of messy Bob and the sudden invasion of his house by incredibly tidy elves.

One Thursday morning the hapless (not to mention rather smelly) Bob wakes up and goes downstairs as usual, only to discover that something is very, very wrong: his kitchen is clean. For a man who truly believes that tidying up is the ultimate time-wasting activity, this is a disaster. It's only when, thanks to the elf activity, he meets someone very special that he realises that taking a less aggressive approach to his elf problem might win the day...

Bob and the House Elves is a clever, funny little book with bold text and line illustrations which combine to tickle the fancy of young readers who are looking for a challenge. Alternatively, this lovely book can be read aloud and makes a great bedtime story for younger, less confident readers. (Age 6 and over.)--Susan Harrison
