staring in disbelief at the letter....which little brother had decorated before Alex saw it...
Hi! My name is Julie the Elf. Thank you for your letter. I really like the snowman drawing-- I will put it up in the bunkhouse where I sleep with my other friends who are on Elf Patrol.
Yes, it is true. I have been assigned your house. I was in charge of watching your Uncle Willy a long time ago, and he was such a nice young man that I asked to be your Elf Patrol representative as well.
If you write me letters, I will write you back!
Thank you for being such nice children-- it makes my job very pleasant!
Julie the Elf
