Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
About this imaginative tale of an invisible troll, PW said, ``The gentle story with its eye-filling scenes is an apt choice for bedtime read-alouds.'' Ages 4-8. (Aug.)
Children's Literature - Deborah Zink Roffino
Not every troll in Sweden is troublesome. In the snowy softness of the long winter night, nearly all is quiet at the lonely little farmhouse. Through the hazy watercolors, light as a dream, the Tomten moves silently on his nightly rounds. Capturing the serenity of a pastoral winter, Lindgren retells in tranquil prose a favorite Swedish poem where a friendly troll leaves soundless tracks and whispers promises of a coming spring.
