Goodreads Synopsis:

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.

Book Review:
Pre-Reading Thoughts:

I  love reading I love reading middle grade books around Christmas time, especially if they are focused on the season. I cannot wait to jump into this short book!

Thank you so much to the author for providing me with a copy of her book! Just a small disclaimer for those reading this short little review. I have received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. Please note that this does not affect my opinion at all. All thoughts are my own

Final Thoughts:

Due to this being a very short story, I have decideded to just comment on the overall storyline and not on the various aspects that I usually do. 

Overall, I really liked this middle-grade book. It followed the format of a majority of Christmas tales and by this I mean it had a lesson or a moral to teach. This book felt like it relied a lot on family relations as well as following what you think is right. I liked Frede as a character. He is the youngest of his two brothers. He was caring and would do anything for his family, despite being really young. I definitely think that this is perfect if you have young children or siblings. Thank you so much to the author for providing me with a copy of this book!

Yours in Reading,
