Overview

This touching Christmas allegory reminds readers young and old alike to stay alert for God's most unexpected gifts. It's Christmas Eve and Andrew is upset. His father won't let him open his gifts early. So Andrew and his little sister, Lindsay, run away to the woods. As they venture deeper into the forest, Andrew and Lindsay hear a thundering, gravelly voice, "Who's s-s-s-sitting on my b-b-b-belly?" It was a troll with orange spiky hair! The two siblings receive quite a fright until they realize the troll isn't mean at all. He's ugly, but nice. The funny-looking troll proves to be an incredible gift and makes Andrew revisit his feelings about presents and Christmas.
