We read it together with my 10 year old and 5 year old as a bedtime story. We all liked this little story. My daughters thought he was funny!

HASH(0xa53a4ca8) out of 5 stars cute children's book Feb. 21 2011
By Allison - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a cute Christmas story about a little (young) elf who wants to be grown up. He sneaks back in to the toy room when the grown-ups have gone, in order to prove his grown-up abilities. Needless to say, the results aren't exactly as planned. Our dear little elf must decide - stay and fess up to the problems or run. Which does he pick? What are the results? Let's just say Santa *always* knows who has been naughty or nice.

The book does have some cute pictures, but is certainly not predominantly pictures. It is an appropriate length, and of light enough content to make a pretty good bedtime story. I'd guess a 4 to 5 year old would be the best age range for the book.

Text to speech: if you are used to listening to the TTS it isn't bad, but there are a number of places where backquotes are used and the TTS voice says the word "backquote" each time. That might be distracting to your younger listeners.

HASH(0xa53a400c) out of 5 stars OK, I guess Feb. 19 2011

Cute pictures are the main thing this book has going for it. The story itself is kind of insipid. My 6 year old liked it ok, and he is more the target audence. Mostly I'm glad I did not pay for it.

HASH(0xb8ef1e10) out of 5 stars Too big for your britches April 15 2011
By Reader's Paradise - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Squidge is set for youth ages 4-8, and the next time my god children come over I plan to have them read it to me and ask if they like it. As an adult I can see where a child would be entertained by the story, the pictures are clear and the story is about what someone in that age group can identify with.
The theme of the story is when we make mistakes we cannot run and hide from them we have to stand up and face the consequences. A much needed concept for our children today. An underlining theme stay a child for as long as you can, because when you try to grow to fast you make mistakes moving in a larger world.

HASH(0xa54dfb58) out of 5 stars Overused plot and not very well written July 3 2013
By Bea Daniels - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The elf child does something wrong and instead of owning up to it, runs away, and hides in what turns out to be Santa's sack. The elf 'redeems' himself by saving Santa from a snowman with a karate kick to the snow man. The disobeying and then running away plot is overused in a lot of self-published children's books. The whole first part of the story about the toys being manufactured factory-style instead of hand-made by elves was dull to my grandkids. Hard to get them to make it to the end of the story. I thought the karate kick to the snow man was ridiculous but it was funny to them and actually the only part of the book they responded to.

HASH(0xa54dfe34) out of 5 stars Not enough pictures Nov. 19 2012

For an e-book, I expect better illustrations. The story was cute, but there were hardly any pictures, which isn't very much fun to read to a 3 year old.
