To kick it off

I'm pretty tired of some spelling (and usage) mistakes people make, so I decided to start a blog about it. I'm talking about really basic mistakes that can be avoided pretty easily. To kick off, I'd like to share an Enid Blyton story.
(I read it a long time ago and I'm just writing it as I remember it)

One day an elf was walking in the woods when he suddenly heard a strange chanting. When he saw that it was a magician making a spell, he quickly hid behind a tree to watch.

"T-O-A-D-S-T-O-O-L!" chanted the magician, and dropped a toadstool into the pot in front of him. "B-L-U-E-B-E-L-L!" he chanted, and this time dropped a bluebell into the pot. He went on with several other items, and after dropping the last one in, there was a big bang and he fell back.

Then, to the elf's surprise, the magician scooped up a handful of gold from the bottom of the pot. He then proceeded to repeat the spell and make more gold.

The elf immediately decided to make his own gold. Who would have thought that spells were so easy?

Once he had found everything necessary for the spell, he began chanting. "T-O-D-S-T-O-O-L-E!" he chanted, dropping a toadstool into the pot. "B-L-U-B-E-L-L!"

When he had put in the last item, there was a big bang and he fell back. Filled with excitement, he crept up to the pot and peered inside. To his astonishment, he saw inside, not gold, but a large dictionary!

So what's the moral of this story? Spell it right!

I'd be happy if someone could let me know whether it was an elf (or a goblin, or a whatever) and his name! (or just suggest a name)
