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.
