About the Author:

Marit Törnqvist was born in 1964 in Uppsala, Sweden, and studied illustration at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. She divides her time between the Netherlands and Sweden. In 2011, she was awarded a Golden Plaque from the Biennial of Illustration Bratislava, one of the most prestigious children's illustration awards. She has illustrated several of Astrid Lindgren's picture books, including A Calf for Christmas, Goran's Great Escape, and In the Land of Twilight, all published by Floris Books.

Review:

'A beautifully illustrated tale adapted from an old Swedish poem. The Tomten, who looks after the farm at night, meets a hungry fox and agrees to share his supper with him if the fox promises to leave the hens alone. A very gentle, friendly story. It is refreshing that he understands that the fox is hungry and needs to eat -- rather than the 'nasty fox' approach. The children I have read this to loved it.' -- Hilary Woolf with Isaac (age 5), Education Otherwise, April 2005
