Imagine a town with smog every where, imagine a town where the streets are dirty and finally, imagine only owning one room; that’s what it’s like for Albert and Victoria. They’re twins and their ma and pa were called Jim and Elizabeth. Well they never new there ma as she died when they were born and they never really new their pa as he died of grief a month later.

Still, at least the elves have small hands and are good at the fiddly stuff.
