“The Krampus Tree” in Christmas Lites V
As a shy child I was relieved never to have the honour to meet either up close. The illustrations in the book are delightful and very detailed. To me Krampus looks more funny than scary, so children should cope. The text is simple and complements the pictures well. The book made me laugh and remember my childhood. We were told similar stories when we were yound. A delight for both adults and children alike. Delighted to have won a copy in a Goodreads giveaway. Looking forward to reading it to my daughter next.
I was delighted to receive this in a Goodreads giveaway. Physically it's a short book, with the main story only 16 pages long. Each page has a piece of text, partially rhyming, accompanied by large illustrations. The latter were the strongest part for me, always capturing the scene well. By contrast I found some of the text awkward, and also wondered how easily it would read aloud.
Having said that, the book would be good to read to young children, and even starts with an adult doing just that. And it also has quite a strong moral message for youngsters: be good, or Krampus will bring you something horrid. That said, it is a scary book in places, and while children often enjoy being scared I would caution against reading this to any that are extremely young. But otherwise a strong thumbs-up from me. When I was younger and in that stage where you think you can do anything my mom told me about "Krampus" and I used to be petrified of him when I was younger.
He was like the opposite of Santa who comes on 23rd of December. My mom told me that if you were good, Santa would give you toys or if you were a bad child Krampus would pull your ears and whack you with a bundle of twigs. So reading this book really takes be back of how I was so afraid of him when I was younger.
