Synopsis

The Tomtes of Hilltop Stream by Brenda Tyler

Emily and Jamie live near Hilltop Wood. Through Hilltop Wood runs Hilltop Stream, and the two children love to splash and play in its clear water. One day, they discover the stream has become dark and dirty, and the otter they used to see has gone. What can they do? This is the third enchanting story about Jamie and Emily's helpful Tomte friends, who help them make the stream sparkle again. But will the otter return?

Reviews

'The story is easy to read, and the illustrations too!'

'A charming new story.'

'A unique, imaginative illustrated nature fantasy series book about a tiny ecological cleanup crew called the Tomtes, wise, tiny elf-like beings who understand the ways of nature and how wild things live, and are rarely seen by adults... This charming book and series celebrates nature and the need for a clean environment. The beautiful paintings are inspired by the artist's home in southern England.'

'In this delightful story some Tomtes (mythological little creatures from Scandinavian folklore), turn Emily and Jamie into Tomtes and they all work together building boats and rafts for their journey downstream to clean up the stream.'
