Lola dresses up like one of santa's elves, and secretly lends a helping hand to everyone in her family - with holly-arious results. But the biggest yuletide treat may be for Lola hers-elf.


From Publisher's Weekly Diane deGroat's school-going possum, Gilbert (hero of the series including Roses Are Pink, Your Feet Really Stink), plays second fiddle to his little sister, Lola, in Lola the Elf, which inaugurates the Lola's Dress-up Box books. When Lola decides to be a helpful "elf" as her parents make Christmas Eve preparations, gatefold flaps unfold reveal the humorous, less-than-helpful results. Ages 3-6.
