Aaron the elf makes new friends easily, but his parents wish he wouldn’t always bring them home with him. Do they really need a frog, a mermaid and an alien living with them?  Aaron’s ideas aren’t always the best, although he tries hard. He just can’t seem to get things right.

Aaron’s Adventures includes six short stories describing this mischievous little elf’s experiences. Although the illustrations are well done, these tales are too tame to be called adventures. Aaron never finds himself in any danger, other than from the wrath of his parents, and he never leaves the safety of his home turf.  I would have preferred to see more excitement and less of his parents in these stories.
