KIRKUS REVIEW

A wee story about wee people by this British author-artist (see Cinderella's Mouse, and The Wind Call) centers its small circle of events around Katinka, a woods- man's daughter, and her shy friend Jokle, a bear cub. At just about the same time, they find a hut that had belonged to a dwarf, but in making it into her own play home, Katinka frightens Jokle away. Through coaxing she makes him into a friend and a pet to take care of (like a baby, which should satisfy young longings in that direction), and they spend a happy Christmas together. Uneventful but not without its appeal for the mothering instinct.
