In Christmas Trolls, the delightful trolls from "The Trouble With Trolls" learn about Christmas...most importantly, that the spirit of Christmas is giving, not getting. In today's materialistic society which seems to create greedy and whiny children, a powerful message indeed. We read it year round and enjoy it, it is frequently requested by my children, and it's one of the books I never get sick of reading.
The illustrations are truly spectacular. Even grown ups will want to take a lot of time to study the intricacies of these pictures. The clothing depicted is especially interesting and beautiful.
The story is sweet, with a redemption rather than punishment ending. I always prefer when a children's story has a redemption ending. That's a better message to give our children: that everyone can be reformed if given the right opportunities.
You'll just get a really happy, warm feeling from this book.
Christmas Trolls is also suitable for very small children.
Treva and Sami, and their Mom and Dad are preparing their house for Christmas. The have gathered decorations, prepared food, and wrapped presents for one another. As the days get closer to Christmas, some of the presents, and some of the food, as well as the decorations start to disappear. The children go looking for the things, and as they walk around the outside of their house, certain clues appear. For instance, a delicious cake is being moved across the snow packed ground, in the direction of the tree house. A hedgehog is carrying it on its back.
In the tree house, you will find Mig and Tig, and the two trolls, who obviously have planned that the two little hedgehogs are the ones to carry these things from the family's house to the tree house where the trolls live. By the way, a hedgehog is a small animal with a spiny coat, who can defend itself by rolling into a ball. You would not want to mistake one for a place to sit; it would be like sitting on a ball of pins.
One day, shortly before Christmas, Treva and Sami discover the hedgehogs sneaking off with some of the presents, some of the decorations, and some of the presents. They follow the hedgehogs who bring these things to the tree house where the two trolls live.Read more ›
The illustrations are Nordic inspired, and beautifully portrayed in bright colors. The side bars on each page also provide insight into the story, helping readers piece together the essential parts to the story which makes this an engaging and interactive read, as my daughter kept looking at the side illustrations and pointed out to me things that even I would have missed if I had not looked at them. This is our favorite Jan Brett story and makes a great read for bedtime, during the holidays and all through the year!

Very pretty illustrations! But I have to say I did not like that the "meaning of Christmas" was defined, in very clear terms, as presents and special food. Read morePublished 4 months ago by virginiacelt
