Children's fiction - tiny mystical beings in the back yard

Fev 9, 4:33 pm

Child discovers a village made by tiny beings living in the back yard (trolls/gnomes/elves, I can't remember). They determine that the village can't be fake because the fire pit is large, and if someone were faking the village, they would have made tiny fire pits.

Not sure whether the fire-pit detail is a match, but there's Afternoon of the Elves by Janet Taylor Lisle.

That might be it, I read it in the 90's, so the publish date would be a match. I'm going to check it out from the library and I'll report back. Thanks!

If it helps:
Miniature, little, tiny characters -- children's/young adult fiction may have some books (free to borrow).

>2 beyondthefourthwall: darn, just read Afternoon off the Elves, and that isn't it. (Although I definitely read that one back in the 90s too)
