Grump, the Yule Tomte lives all by himself, which suits him just fine! Grump is waiting for Christmas to come when a sudden gust of wind steals his mittens from the clothesline and blows his hat from off the top of his head. That's the final straw–Grump won't be the Yule Tomte anymore!
Meanwhile, the rabbit children, Binny and Barty, live with their family in the forest. They've never heard of the Yule Tomte or Christmas until the wind brings them some peculiar gifts!
The other animals in the forest prepare for Christmas, making gifts, baking sweets and they even write a song. But will the Yule Tomte bring Christmas to the big forest this year?
This delightful and humorous Christmas story is told over 25 chapters – one to read for each night of Advent.
Written by Ulf Stark and featuring charming illustrations by Eva Eriksson, The Yule Tomte and the Little Rabbits is a perfect book for families to share together year-after-year!
"A joy to read and to share with children... Stark bestows each of the main characters with vivid personalities, and Eriksson’s depiction of Grump is particularly irresistible. And the ending is a delightful surprise, involving a twinkling ice house and a delicious moment of silence with everyone involved. It’s filled with wonder and friendship."
