Things are not always what they seem at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Claus. You – and your children – might think that Santa has the best job in the world, one that starts at midnight on Christmas Eve and then comes to a wonderful, gift-filled ending just 24 hours later when all the youngsters across the world are busy unwrapping their presents with their eyes sparkling in delight and anticipation.

Well, that’s how it might look to an outsider – but that’s certainly not how it looks to the elves (and lady elvas) who work so closely with Santa the full year-round to make Christmas run so smoothly. Behind the scenes, the elves and elvas are hard at work for the entire 12 months just to make sure that Christmas is everything that children could possibly hope for.

Tales from Santa’s Album (as told by the Elves Themselves) is a charming, captivating new publication from the pen of Canadian author Annie Vance. At its heart, it’s the story of Santa and Christmas as seen through the eyes of three of his elves, the triplet trio of Selwyn, Nelwyn and Welwyn Mahood. Nelwyn and Welwyn are the big, strong elves; Selwyn, slighter of stature and maybe a bit prone to sickliness, is the thoughtful, smart one! But brothers are brothers – and these elves really know how to stick together.

Tales from Santa’s Album is a marvelous book for children. It will be especially welcome in those lovely, crisp days and evenings that lead us into the Christmas season – and it’s the perfect book for Moms and Dads to read to their kids as they tuck them into bed. It’s also a wonderful Christmas read for older children as well because the elves’ stories are thoughtful, loving and captivating, the perfect way to put your kids into the Christmas spirit.

Tales from Santa’s Album brings to life the stories of how Santa and the elves work tirelessly to make Christmas a wonderful success. There are stories (and subtle messages) of how great things can be accomplished when everyone pitches in to work together! And there is some history, too, in the stories of the elves’ family background and how they endured and overcame enormous sorrow and hardship over the course of their lives.

The Mahood triplets, it turns out, were themselves born on a Christmas Eve long ago. And what they learned as they grew up, in the arms of a loving family with strong, loving bonds, is that the greatest gift anyone can give – or receive – is love itself. That's the warm Christmas message in Tales from Santa’s Album – it's a special gift, too, the perfect kind of gift that your children will love.
