The Youngest Elf and Other Stories is a collection of seven brand-new stories, all centered on the magic and fun of the holidays. Santa and his elves are in many of the tales, though there are some that don't feature the Jolly Old Elf. All the stories end happily, and there's no sex or violence so they are suitable for children. For instance, there's a dragon in one story, and another tells of a kitten who found a home on Christmas Eve. However, there is enough here to intrigue adults as well, and the stories truly are meant for all ages. The book is the first in a series, with the second due out next year.
