  1. Miriam

    I didn t realize when I ordered this book for Christmas that it was an adaptation of a story I already had two versions of Basic plot a person is traveling in Finnmark on Christmas Eve with a polar bear In this is and I believe also in Jan Brett s version he is taking the bear to show to the king Looking for a night s shelter, he finds a house full of food, but the owner warns him that every year the trolls come and devour the Christmas feast The family is on their way out to hide till the party [...]

    A retelling of Norwegian folk tale, this Christmas story is illustrated by Tomie De Paola The story might seem familiar as it has been popularized by Jan Brett s versionWho s That Knocking on Christmas Eve But my preference is for this version, with De Paola s hilariously grotesque trolls asking the polar bear Pussy, would you like a sausage

  3. Cheriee Weichel

    This is absolutely just about my favorite Christmas tale ever I have read it numerous times to groups of children and not only is it always a hit, it is never boring to read again for me Jan Brett tells this story in Who s that knocking on Christmas Eve , but de Paola s version is superior.

  4. Dolly

    This is an entertaining Norwegian folktale to read at Christmastime and our girls loved that the cat was so big and ferocious We ve also read Who s That Knocking on Christmas Eve by Jan Brett, so the basic storyline of the book was familiar to us The illustrations by Tomie dePaola are very typical for his books and we loved the trolls Overall, it was a fun book to read aloud and we enjoyed reading it together.

  5. MH

    Wonderful humorous story of a simple Norwegian farmer with visiting troll problems at Christmastime which are resolved by a visitor with a pet polar bear whom the trolls think is a cat It was published in the UK and written in British English with words not commonly used here It was one of my children s favorite.

  6. Laura

    This is a funny little tale I of course, loved Tomie s illustrations, they give the story a comical and fantastical sort of feel I did like his pictures of the trolls and their antics I also fell in love with the polar bear, he was quite endearing I would recommend Taken from my book reviews blog reviewsatmse 2009

  7. MH

    One of my children s favorite books No character gets eaten or dies yet the weak win out over the powerful De Paola s illustrations enhance the humorous retelling of this Norwegian Christmas folktale.

  8. Mary Catelli

    A comic little tale about Christmas, wherein a man has tamed a bear and trolls celebrate with indifference to those who own the house they celebrate in.
