Frede and Santa by Leen Lefebre Review

A child’s journey to help his family takes him on a perilous adventure through elf infested woods ruled by the mysterious Elf King, and only Santa can help save the day. This is the story of Frede and Santa by Leen Lefebre, and here is they 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.

This was a fun read. It reminded me of an old and classic fairy tale, fraught with monstrous creatures and a child’s will to save those closest to him. Frede wants nothing more than to help his family, and the story allows children to see what happens when you put others before yourself, and go above and beyond to protect the ones we love. The story of the evil Elf King and his people reminded me of a Grimm Fairy tale, while the story of Santa and his village was a heartwarming story that when blended with Frede and his adventure makes for a modern day holiday classic that parents and children alike will love to read.

Overall this was a fantastic read. It was short yet sweet and to the point. A wonderful children’s book filled with adventure and a heartwarming tale of one child’s hope of helping his family, this is something parents and children alike won’t want to miss.

A special #tbt today in honor of my grandfather. Three years ago today he passed away, but he has never truly left us. I love and miss him every single day, and his influence and life is felt by myself and my family every day. Christmas was his favorite holiday because it brought his family together, so while we mourn his passing, we will honor his memory by happily coming together as a family and celebrating our favorite time of the year. I ❤️ you Grandpa! Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas everyone 🌲😃🎁 #happyholidays #holidayseason #holiday #christmas #christmastime #christmas2015 #grandpa #memories #love #family
