Tovic Tomte & the Trolls (a Tale of Norway)

The Tomte are little people no taller than a dandelion who help farmers in the forests. But when one young scamp, Tovic, grows tired of hearing his family’s tales of adventure he decides to go on an adventure of his own. On Christmas Eve he sets out to win a jewel for the kind farmer’s daughter Adelgunda on her wedding day. But that means sneaking into the giant Trolls’ cave on the one night they count their riches and then getting back out before sunrise, or else be trapped in the cave for a year… or worse yet… eaten in a pie! Can Tomte have his own adventure of a lifetime and live to tell the tale?
