The Elf Child
The Blue Dark
by Kenneth Michael Davidson

Sweet young Elf Child is lost and afraid. But the Elf Child is also one very plucky little sprite. The brave young child can soon be seen soaring over glistening spotless snow to discover life’s most treasured gift. Along the way, several curious characters including some nice mice, a dog, a bunny, a nightingale, and an owl help the Elf Child. The affection shown by these lovable characters reveals something that all children, or elves, need and deserve. Beautifully illustrated, The Elf Child story is based on a whimsical lullaby of the same name by author Kenneth Davidson. Information about the YouTube music video will be found at the end of the book.

About the Illustrator

Donna Moore has had a longstanding passion for the arts in its many forms of expression. Over the years this passion has evolved into wonderful canvas paintings. When approached to illustrate The Elf Child, Donna was quite intrigued and in little time envisioned a layout of drawings that more than adequately conveys the essence and meaning of the “beautiful lyrics” (her words).
