Meet Some of the Elves

By Elf Candice Cane

Elves are each different, just like regular people. We are a little shorter (okay, a lot shorter), we usually live a very long time, and when we are around 300 years old our ears become a little pointed.

Below are names of some of the elves you may have heard about or even met.
