From Kirkus Reviews
Blond, blue-eyed Treva (The Trouble with Trolls, 1992) teaches a pair of greedy little trolls how to celebrate Christmas: following them in order to find the gifts and ornaments they've snitched from her house, she helps them decorate their home, shows them how to share, and offers them a gift--a gesture they make in return on Christmas morning. The story is predictable but related with appealing directness; and fans will be enchanted, once again, with the lovingly detailed folk/Scandinavian details in Brett's bright, crisply delineated art, especially in the intriguing borders--where the trolls' charming pet hedgehogs are busy with their own related pursuits. (Picture book. 4-8) -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.

In Christmas Trolls, the delightful trolls from "The Trouble With Trolls" learn about Christmas...most importantly, that the spirit of Christmas is giving, not getting. In today's materialistic society which seems to create greedy and whiny children, a powerful message indeed. We read it year round and enjoy it, it is frequently requested by my children, and it's one of the books I never get sick of reading.
The illustrations are truly spectacular. Even grown ups will want to take a lot of time to study the intricacies of these pictures. The clothing depicted is especially interesting and beautiful.
The story is sweet, with a redemption rather than punishment ending. I always prefer when a children's story has a redemption ending. That's a better message to give our children: that everyone can be reformed if given the right opportunities.
You'll just get a really happy, warm feeling from this book.
Christmas Trolls is also suitable for very small children.
