Riassunto:

An ordinary Danish Christmas turns extraordinary when a family overlooks an important folkloric tradition.

Christmas has come, and with it a sparkling white winterfrost over the countryside. But twelve-year-old Bettina's parents have been called away unexpectedly, leaving her in charge of the house, the farm, and baby Pia. In all the confusion, Bettina's family neglects to set out the traditional bowl of Christmas rice pudding for the tiny nisse who are rumored to look after the family and their livestock. No one besides her grandfather ever believed the nisse were real, so what harm could there be in forgetting this silly custom? But when baby Pia disappears during a nap, the magic of the nisse makes itself known. To find her sister and set things right, Bettina must venture into the miniature world of these usually helpful, but sometimes mischievous folk. A delightful winter adventure for lovers of the legendary and miraculous.

About the Author:

Michelle Houts is the author of the middle-grade novel The Beef Princess of Practical County and its sequel, The Practical County Drama Queen. She fell in love with the nisse folk more than twenty years ago while living in Denmark, where she became fascinated with tales of their mischief and fun. Her Danish friends continue to share nisse stories and an occasional nisse sighting. She dreams of returning to Denmark at Christmastime so she can show her gratitude to the nisse with a warm bowl of rice pudding. Michelle Houts lives on a grain and livestock farm in west central Ohio with her husband and three children.
