Having a "scout" elf who visits during the holidays has become a popular Christmas tradition for many families since Elf on the Shelf was introduced in 2005. Since then, Elf on the Shelf, a children's book written by Carol Aebersold and her daughters, Chanda Bell and Christa Pitts, has sold more than 2 million copies. Now children who love the story of Santa's scout elves can get a chance to learn more about the Elf on the Shelf. "An Elf's Story" first aired on CBS on November 25, 2011 and is now on sale on DVD. Here's a look at the secret life of Christmas elves.

Product description: Nine-year-old Taylor McTuttle has reached a crossroads. Does he believe Santa Claus really knows who is naughty or nice? Does he even believe in Santa Claus anymore? An Elf's Story is the inspirational tale of Chippey, the young scout elf who is assigned by Santa to restore Taylor's belief in Christmas magic. When the boy breaks the number one Elf on the Shelf rule, Chippey loses his Christmas magic; the entire McTuttle family loses its scout elf, and both Taylor and Chippey lose their self-respect. Through the power of love and forgiveness, both of them learn that true belief cannot be taught. Destined to be a beloved family Christmas classic, An Elf's Story is filled with fun, music and the timeless message that Christmas is something we carry in our hearts.

An Elf's Story DVD and TV Special

An Elf on the Shelf DVD movie

If the Elf on the Shelf weren't already popular enough, it got a big boost during the 2011 Christmas season when CBS aired a new animated holiday special called "The Elf on the Shelf: An Elf's Story." The 23-minute special was broadcast on November 25, and the DVD and Blu-Ray versions of the special came out the next day.

"The Elf on the Shelf: An Elf's Story" follows the adventures of Chippey, one of Santa Claus' scout elves. Like all the scout elves from the North Pole, Chippey's job is to visit children and report back to Santa on their behavior so good ol' St. Nick knows who should go on the Naughty List and who should go on the Nice List. Chippey is assigned to a family with a young boy named Taylor McTuttle. The CBS press release says Taylor "struggles to believe in the magic of Christmas." Chippey's job is not only to report on the boy's behavior, but to restore his faith in Christmas magic, too. But when Taylor breaks the rules, Chippey loses his magic powers.

The Elf on the Shelf website says that what happens then is "through the power of love and forgiveness, both of them learn that true belief cannot be taught." CBS says the special carries the "timeless message that Christmas is something we carry in our hearts."

This special is now available on DVD and Blu-Ray to purchase, or you can look for it on TV again!
