Moonlit scenes of the farmyard under snow show Reynard the fox prowling near the henhouse. He's hungry, but Tomten, the kindly old troll who guards the henhouse at night, shares his porridge with the fox and the hens are safe--for another night. Ages 4-8.

'A beautifully illustrated tale adapted from an old Swedish poem. The Tomten, who looks after the farm at night, meets a hungry fox and agrees to share his supper with him if the fox promises to leave the hens alone. A very gentle, friendly story. It is refreshing that he understands that the fox is hungry and needs to eat - rather than the 'nasty fox' approach. The children I have read this to loved it.' - Hilary Woolf with Isaac (age 5), Education Otherwise, April 2005
