This book is one of a kind and is highly recommended by Mrs. H's third grade class. We liked learning about the trolls in the story, and the way Treva changed them from being stingy to generous. This is a good book for kids because it shows the true Christmas spirit. We hope everyone gets to read this book because it makes Christmas even more merry!
One Christmas a girl and her brother picked out a Christmas tree, and soon noticed her dog sniffing and barking at the tree as they brought it home. Each day after that the family realized some of their Christmas decorations and gifts would go missing. The day after the angel was taken from the tree, the girl saw the Christmas pudding being carried across the snow. After following it, she met a pair of trolls who only wanted Christmas for themselves. So she helped them decorate their house with Christmas decorations. Since the two were always fighting the girl showed them how to have fun, and before she left, she gave them her favorite toy horse. She then left for home with all of the Christmas gifts and decorations the trolls took. The next day she opened the door to find a toy horse made by the trolls.
Two trolls attempt to have Christmas by taking things, but a little girl visits and teaches them the true way to have Christmas- sharing with one another. She gives them her most prized wooden horse and they give her a wild troll horse in return.
If you like Jan Brett books, this is a good one. The pictures are vivid and the story is so sweet. All my children love this book and it gets well read when I pull it out at Christmas time.
