Now affordable as a paperback, this book is worth every penny just for the colorful and magical artwork by popular children’s author and illustrator, Jan Brett.
As Treva and her family prepare for Christmas, their favorite decorations and the Christmas pudding disappear. Eventually Treva finds the culprits—two trolls who think they can steal Christmas. She shows these irresistible trolls how to truly have Christmas. Little children will learn about sharing and giving, and all readers will be enchanted — once more — by the Scandinavian folk details in Brett’s bright, crisply defined art. Pay attention to the page borders where the trolls’ charming pet hedgehogs are busy with their own Christmas activities. Set in Bergen, Norway.
