about this item
Set in Sweden, this enchanting Christmas tale about a little troll named Rollo explores the nature of what home means. In no hurry to grow up and lose the troll childhood tail, Rollo is constantly playing mean tricks on his family. He decides to run away from home, and ends up living with a variety of animals. A moose, otters, bears, and other animals just aren't a good fit. When Rollo returns home, he finds something wonderful awaiting him. Illustrated with Jan Brett's signature detailed style. Brett's research for the book took her to Sweden and kindled a love of moose.
Rollo the troll is tired of chores, but after spending time on the tundra with various animal families, from owls to moose, he realizes that he wants to be home for Christmas even if that means behaving himself.
