In a faraway village there lives a farmer with his wife. The summer harvest has failed and winter already arrives. So, how should they feed their three sons? The idea arises to fetch wood in the northern forest. They could dry it, sell it from door to door and earn some money to buy food. 

Frede knows that his parents are doing their best, but is it enough to withstand the most barren period of the year? Together with his brothers, Rhune and Folke, he wants to visit Santa and ask him for help. But, first they must travel through that extensive forest where the evil Elf King lurks.

What a wonderful holiday story!

Starting with a simple and realistic dilemma, a farmer and his family have run into a difficult winter. With three sons to feed and a house to keep warm through the winter, they have to make up for a poor harvest. His son, Frede, especially wants to help, and with a pure heart and desire to do what he can for his loving parents, he sets off with his brothers to seek help from Santa. After all, he wants to be one of Santa's  helpers one day - what better way to introduce himself?

With the giant task of making their way through the evil Elf King's dark forest to get to Santa, the boys face all their fears, and work together to accomplish their goals. The overall sweet tale and inspiring courage of Frede made the whole book amazing, and I only wish it had been longer! The writing was captivating, and made me a permanent fan of this author. I would highly recommend this book, as well as any of her others - I'm sure they are just as wonderful, and hope to get the chance to read them all in the future.

*I was given a complimentary eCopy of this book, from the author, to read in exchange for an honest review.

Thanks for visiting! Have a great day! =D
