Description


On small silent feet, the Tomten tiptoes through the snow, keeping watch over the farm on chilly winter nights. One night, a cunning fox comes by. How will the Tomten guard the chickens, and help the hungry fox?

These classic stories are a delight for young children, depicting the traditional Swedish character of the house elf, or tomten.

This is a beautiful collector’s combined edition of Astrid Lindgren’s two classic Tomten tales, The Tomten and The Tomten and the Fox.


Praise for The Tomten:

“Astrid Lindgren writes evocatively of long cold winters and the benevolent guardianship of the Tomten. A lovely, feel-good picture book with traditionally styled illustrations that show the Tomten as a genial gnome-like figure. Delightful! Families Rating: 5 out of 6” —Families South West magazine

“It would be hard to find a nicer bedtime story. Beautifully painted, quiet moonlit scenes and poetic words tell of the Tomten, a small elf-like person who lives on a farm. It is a beautiful cozy tale of winter bedtimes, very comforting, and definitely one of our favorites.” — Hilary Woolf with Isaac (age 4), Education Otherwise
