Bob is untidy, Bob eats baked beans for dinner every night, Bob is happy. Until one awful morning when he awakes to a spotless house and an infestation of house elves. He and the elves share very different views on house keeping and Bob is mortified to discover - in front of his builder colleagues - that the elves have made him a packed lunch, complete with fairy cakes. Whilst desperately trying to rid himself of their unwanted attention, Bob meets someone rather special, and learns that a different approach is all it takes to cure his elf problem. A enchanting and humorous account of the benefits of compromise, working together and a small amount of house keeping. Praise for Bob and the House Elves: " ideal first novel for independent reading" "...Archbold's...Illustrations add some wicked touches to a gentle fun tale." Books for Keeps
