Product Description: The Tomten
At night, when all is quiet around the farm — that’s when the Tomten wakes up. He is the one who looks after everything while the farmer and his family are sleeping.
‘It would be hard to find a nicer bedtime story. Beautifully painted, quiet moonlit scenes and poetic words tell of the Tomten, a small elf-like person who lives on a farm. It is a beautiful cosy tale of winter bedtimes, very comforting and definitely one of our favourites.’
— Hilary Woolf with Isaac (age 4), Education Otherwise, October 2004
