In the snowy, winter moonlight, the fox sneaks towards the farm, hoping to steal a chicken or two. But he's forgotten about the old Tomten who guards the farm while the farmer and his family are sleeping. A new English edition of a classic Swedish folk tale for children aged 5-8 years. In full colour, large landscape size. Usual high quality Floris Books production. Great Xmas gift.
'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 cosy tale of winter bedtimes, very comforting and definitely one of our favourites.'-- Hilary Woolf with Isaac (age 4), Education Otherwise, October 2004
