Lobster Press

Little ones will delight in new picture books from Montreal’s own Lobster Press. The story of Elton the Elf is nicely told by Lisa Mallen. Elton searches for the holiday he can call home, wandering from one special occasion to the next. Rogé’s illustrations add spunk to a story that teaches kids aged two to five about the yearly events. mRb
