Editorial Reviews

From Kirkus Reviews

Blond, blue-eyed Treva (The Trouble with Trolls, 1992) teaches a pair of greedy little trolls how to celebrate Christmas: following them in order to find the gifts and ornaments they've snitched from her house, she helps them decorate their home, shows them how to share, and offers them a gift--a gesture they make in return on Christmas morning. The story is predictable but related with appealing directness; and fans will be enchanted, once again, with the lovingly detailed folk/Scandinavian details in Brett's bright, crisply delineated art, especially in the intriguing borders--where the trolls' charming pet hedgehogs are busy with their own related pursuits.

We own several of Jan Brett's books. The artwork is superb, entertaining, and the delightful borders on the edges of her pages often provide insights into the plot of the story. As much as we love Jan Brett's other books, this book is by far one of our family favorites. It is both magical and meaningful, and has a strong plot line.
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.

A wonderful children's story with beautifully done illustrations. This book can even keep a 2 year old entertained through the whole story. Clever plot line is amusing enough to make me chuckle as well. Well worth reading and owning.

This book will delight the young child as the hero manages to out smart the trolls. The illustrations are lovely and add a sense of fun to this simple adventure story

This is one of our all time favorite children's books.
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.

Jan Brett books never get old! My pre-K students loved the story of the Christmas Troll! It was a wonderful story about generosity and kindness at Christmas. The beautiful illustrations kept their eyes glued to the pages. I am really glad I bought this for my classroom and to share with my grandson at home!

So much fun to read and look at for all ages. I read this as a bedtime story for a 2-3 year old I was nannying for who loved it. The images are complex and rich, fun to look at for a while. The story is cute and has a nice message of generosity and understanding. A fine book for any time of year.

This is our favorite of Jan Brett's books so far. The moral weighs in a little heavily, but the illustrations are so magical tht they carry the story along almost effortlessly. My children and I have spent hours every Christmas looking at the troll's homes and their Christmas trees. The faithful porcupine silently carries a thread of the story in the half secret way makes Jan Brett's books so special.

Oh how we loved this book! My boys are grown now, but Jan Brett's books were a 'staple' in our house! If we didn't own them, we'd borrow them from the library. I have recently sent this top rated book to a friend's grandson to celebrate his little sister being born. The illustrations are BEAUTIFUL and always a 'side story' in most all of Jan Brett's books. This one was a particular favorite of my boys. We all loved it!
