by Astrid Lindgren
The tomte, who speaks the “tomter” language, is a good natured elf-like creature who lives only on farms and is very busy during the winter while adults and children sleep a lot. These people have never seen him, but they do see his tiny track in the snow. The invisible “tomten” also visits all the farm animals, speaks with them in his language, and brings them straw if they are cold.
Accompanied by beautiful pastel artwork, this is Astri Lindgren’s first book about “tomter”, the little elf who protects and loves the people and animals.
For ages 4 – 9.
