Clarice Bean: Think Like an Elf is a heartwarming story about the excitement of getting ready for Christmas, with a few important reminders about what’s truly important at Christmas time.
Clarice Bean is worried that the quiet Christmas her parents are wanting this year just won’t be the same. But, even without the big noisy Christmas she’s used to, the countdown to this special day is still on – the Christmas tea towels and Christmas glasses are already out after all, and she must adapt.
So, she keeps herself busy with making and posting her Christmas cards, planning the Christmas presents she wants to give to her family and friends, and creating her own Christmas wishlist. There’s also the Christmas tree to buy and decorate of course, and what will be on the menu for Christmas lunch, but what will happen when everything doesn’t go quite according to plan?
Clarice Bean: Think Like an Elf will ignite your Christmas spirit by delivering a few giggles and a touch of festive magic. This story would be perfect for an advent book if you’re planning on sharing Christmas stories this festive season.
Clarice Bean: Think Like an Elf by Lauren Child is available in hardback for a recommended retail price of R320.
