A heartwarming festive tale drawn with gentle humour by acclaimed Finnish illustrator Hannu Taina.

Reviews

'A beautiful story that leaves you feeling warm and fuzzy, perfect for the season! Families Rating: 6 out of 6'

'This is a poignant book about what Christmas means and how we prepare for it. I enjoyed it as a reminder that it's the simple things that can give us the Christmas spirit.'

'A traditional tale told in a simple, but heartwarming way.'

'Children will find it so easy to identify with Tomte's wish to have a special Christmas. The story is heart-warming and the beautiful illustrations full of detail make it easy for non-readers to 'read the pictures'!'
