Her ears always give her away.

Rookie, you are incredibly amazing.
Kendra, your illustrations are always amazing! I loved the story that went with it as well :)
Wow, so cute yet sad, but I think the nickname “Elf” is kinda cute
This is hauntingly beautiful. I love it.
Aww, I always wished I had elf ears, but I suppose they say be careful what you wish for…

One of my ears is a elf ear :-).
I love how the text gets lighter and lighter through the comic

Awww, this is so adorable, but sad at the same time. I love the sunday comics, they are always so unique.

The story reminds me a little of The Autobiography of Red by Anne Carson (which is utterly amazing).

I absolutely ADORE this!
kendra is great!
if you look at it from a lord of the rings perspective “elf” is a huge compliment.
illustrations give me magic dreamy mood… so girlish!

Elf ears are so cuute! I used to want to have surgery to have them and everything. People still called me Elf despite my lack of elfy ears, and I loved it. But I know how people teasing you could make you think a trait you have is a bad thing when in reality it’s not.
I caught myself laughing, but then felt bad…
aw I have elf ears
Super cute! I have one elf ear, rather have two than one!
Oh wow. This is sweet in a very sad way. Why are the third graders making fun of Elf Girl’s ears? Her ears are delightful! Meanies! :(
