"This is a bedtime story that small children will want to hear over and over again."-- The New Yorker

In this sequel to the classic The Tomten , the creator of Pippi Longstocking adapts a Swedish folk tale into a beloved children's story. When a hungry fox wanders into a farm late at night looking for food, the guard troll Tomten finds a way to keep the farm animals safe and feed the fox at the same time.

"The illustrations have a luminous beauty. There's a kind, quiet calm here that warms the winter air."-- The New York Times

"Charming, hushed illustrations and quiet text together evoke the soft, snowy silence and winter beauty of a Swedish night. The troll Tomten mercifully saves the farm animals from the depredations of Reynard the fox, and manages to assuage the fox's hunger to boot!"-- School Library Journal (starred review)
