The Very Small Adventures of Anne Katrine is book 1 of 4 in a series of juvenile fiction manuscripts. The main character, Anne Katrine (pronounced Anne-eh Kah-treen-eh), is a 10-year-old American girl of Danish descent. Staying with her spiteful relatives during her parent’s trip to Denmark was hard enough, but when her parent’s plane mysteriously disappears over the Arctic Circle, it is a curious visit by a group of very strange strangers that leads Anne to discover some astounding magic that changes her life, forever.
Like many 10-year-olds, she is thin with skinny legs and brownish hair. She is someone that both boys and girls can easily relate to. She may be small and occasionally timid, yet she is full of imagination and determination. In these very small adventures, Anne befriends a silly young owl named Dumbert and two Danish elves named Yul and Nissa. But time is running out for them. The elves need help decrypting a set of secret instructions in order to return to the Land of the Arctic Sun and replenish their supply of magic. Without knowing it, Anne holds the key.
If Harry Potter had a younger, muggle sister, it might have been Anne Katrine. And if the North Pole had two, expatriate elves, they might be Yul and Nissa.
