About the Book:

Zeke is a young elf with a problem.

He knows in his heart that he is a Yule Elf and only wants to bring happiness and joy to others. Yule Elves and their cheerful ways have, however,  been banished from all the land, and Zeke has been ordered to keep his belief secret and adapt to the life of a typical, worker elf. As much as he tries to be what others expect of him, Zeke’s secret side always finds a way of coming out until, unable to live as something he’s not, he embarks on a journey to become his true self. Along the way, he befriends a human named Kris Kringle. Together, Zeke and Kris not only start a new holiday called Christmas, but discover themselves as well.
