‘Elsa and the Night’ is a charming children’s story by Jöns Mellgren about a girl who hears a strange noise coming from underneath the sofa. When she goes to investigate, she realises it is neither an animal nor a ghost as she feared, but the night-time itself.
After helping the night, she tells it of her elephant friend, Olaf, who has fallen ill. The two new friends set off on a heart-warming adventure through which Elsa realises that night-time is not at all as scary as it seems.
This beautifully presented children’s book would make a comforting and unique addition to bedtime.
