Alfie is a 14 year old orphaned midget. He has just one wish – to grow tall. He believes that would help him gain lots of adoring friends and even impress Charlene, the girl of his dreams. He tries all tricks and tips to increase his height, but to no avail. Finally, he pins all his hopes on a miracle by writing to Santa and stays ‘good’ through the year.

That is only the beginning of a fantastical journey that takes him across mythical lands where he meets creatures straight out of fairy tales. With a wicked wizard out to dominate the universe and a worried Santa with his share of woes, Alfie has his hands full. Will he be able to achieve his dream? With the help of his best friend, Bullet, a pug and Pedro, an owl, he just might!

Shaiju has brought a new wave into the Indian writing world by introducing Alfie The Elf. The book is quite interesting and the characters are quite lovable. Being an actor I can see this book potentially being made into a Disney animation movie. Loved every moment and I finished the book within no time. It's a well-recommended book to every reader whether child or adult. Go for it.
