In the moonlight, the fox sneaks toward the farm, hoping to steal a chicken or two. But he's forgotten about the old Tomten who guards the farm . . .

This classic children’s picture book is an introduction to the fabled Swedish gnome, the Tomten. He is the one who looks after everything while the farmer and his family are sleeping. At night, when all is quiet around the farm—that’s when the Tomten wakes up.

(Ages 5–8 years)
