Hi D,

Ce livre plaît à elle is not correct French it is,

Ce livre lui plaît .

You could say: Ce livre plaît beaucoup à Elsa.

But if you use a pronoun it will need to be before the verb.

Take a look at the examples in the lesson for further explanation.

Hope this helps!

Because plaire needs an indirect object and the indirect object of elle is lui.
