An exquisitely illustrated retelling of Tove Jansson's classic story The Fir Tree, in which the Moomins are awakened from their Long Winter Sleep to be told that Christmas is coming. The only trouble is, the Moomins have no idea who--or what--Christmas is. As the Moomins prepare for Christmas, they learn what Christmas is really about.
