Astrid Lindgren

Book - The Tomten and the Fox - Astrid Lindgren


This year we are so happy to be celebrating all things Astrid Lindgren in our store, Sweden's most loved children's author, which began with the special Pappa Sven screening of 'Becoming Astrid' on International Women's Day.

This is a beautiful story, written by Astrid, for young children that is sure to sooth their little souls. Charming, hushed illustrations and quiet text together evoke the soft, snowy silence and winter beauty of a Swedish night.

In this sequel to the classic The Tomten, the creator of Pippi Longstocking adapts a Swedish folk tale into a beloved children’s story. When a hungry fox wanders into a farm late at night looking for food, the guard troll Tomten finds a way to keep the farm animals safe and feed the fox at the same time.
