The Tomten and the Fox
Tomten and the Fox
by Astrid Lindgren, illustrated by Harald Wiberg
The Tomten and the Fox and its
companion, The Tomten, are among our favorite
all-time children's stories! We loved listening to the stories and
looking at the pictures, and now we love reading them to our own
children (and we will always love to look at the pictures.) These are classic stories with
beautiful, entrancing illustrations that are sure to be cherished and
enjoyed by adults and children alike. The Tomten saves the chickens
from Reynard the fox, and offers his own porridge to feed the hungry fox so
that all ends well for the animals on this winter night.

again and again." - The New Yorker

kind, quiet calm here that warms the winter air." - The New York
