From the creator of Findus the Cat and his adventures with Farmer Pettson comes a Christmas story to charm us all.

Every Christmas Eve, the Master puts out rice pudding for the tomtes to say thank you for their help around the house during the year. Recently, however, the Master has forgotten, and Mama tomte knows he will forget again this year.

The elves hatch a plot to steal a bowl of Christmas porridge, without being seen, so that Papa tomte doesn’t get angry.

This charming story is based on an old Swedish Christmas tradition. It is illustrated with great humor and is filled with delightful detail, as the tomte family scurry around their Master’s house one busy Christmas Eve.

(Ages 4–7)
