Sneaking around our shop are mysterious, annoying little creatures we call Book Elves.
They hide our pens, rearrange our books, unplug our lights and generally try to make us more crazy than we already are.
While in the shop, if you happen to see a small elf-like creature scampering about, please try to herd them back to their door located in the children's section. Thank you.
