Home: Reading Nook:  The Tomten

The Tomten
written by Astrid Lindgren, illustrated by Harald Wiberg



Enlarge view

 

The Tomten is one of our favorite all-time children's stories! Our parents read us this book years ago, (along with the equally wonderful companion book, The Tomten and the Fox), and now our own children also love gazing at the illustrations and listening to the story over and over.

In Swedish myth a Tomten is an elfin creature/troll who cares for the farms and its inhabitants at night.  Astrid Lindgren and Harald Wiberg together paint a mesmerizing tale about the Tomten and his watch duties:

Here is a lonely old farm where everyone is sleeping. All but one . . .

The Tomten is awake. He lives in a corner of the hayloft and comes out at night when human beings are asleep. He is an old, old Tomten who has seen the snow of many hundreds of winters. No one knows when he came to the farm. No one has ever seen him, but they know he is there. Sometimes when they wake up they see the prints of his feet in the snow. But no one has seen the Tomten.

(
excerpt from The Tomten)

This classic children's story is sure to delight children for generations to come!  Rare and Hard-to-find Hardcover edition.
