A debut fantasy novel by a beloved picture book author, and the first in an exciting trilogy set in the world of fairies


When Matt and his family move to a new neighborhood, they do not realize that they've inadvertently stumbled into the middle of massive upheaval in the fairy world. With the elves' territory disintegrating and dark factions looking to seize control, apprentice mage Tuava-Li must defend her way of life--even when that means cooperating with Matt, a human and a natural enemy, as he may just hold the key to keeping the elf realm from certain destruction.


Daniel Kirk has created a mystical world that will envelop readers. A rich story peppered with illustrations that make it come alive, Elf Realm is a world few will want to leave.

A nice book.

SPOILER****** My Thoughts on this Novel: Imagine another world where mythological beings live separated from us just by a border. What would happen if the border that protected elves and humans were to disappear? The chapters alternate between Matt's family and the elves who live in the forest near Matt's house. Unknowingly Matt's father Charlie McCormick is destroying the land that the elves call home by trying to build a housing development on the land that he inherited from his mother. This book was a little dark for a tween/teen book but the more I read the more intrigued I became. I'm definitely looking forward to discovering what Matt, his family, Tomtar and the elves will do to save their land.
