A Christmas Story for Advent
Ulf Stark Translated by Susan BeardIllustrated by Eva Eriksson
Grump the Yule Tomte lives all alone, which is exactly how he likes it! He's
waiting for Christmas to arrive when all of a sudden a gust of wind steals
his mittens from the washing line and his hat from his head. That's the last
straw...he won't be the Yule Tomte anymore!
Binny and Barty, the rabbit children, live with their family in the forest. They've
never heard of Christmas, or the Yule Tomte, until the wind brings them some
All the animals in the forest prepare for the arrival of Christmas. They make
presents, bake sweet treats and even write a song. But will the Yule Tomte
ever bring Christmas to the big forest?
This charming and funny Christmas story of a grumpy tomte and the hopeful
little rabbits is told over twenty-five chapters—one for each day of Advent --
with delightful festive illustrations. Perfect for families to share together.
