The kids and I love it! The author hits the nail on the head with all the kinds of “quiet.” I didn’t know there was a Christmas one but now I want it! I think it’s perfect for adults and would make great coffee table books. I think guests would love to flip through them.

The other link is for Astrid Lindren World.

I thought this book would be a major hit at your house. (http://www.amazon.com/Christmas-Noisy-Village-Picture-Puffin/dp/0140503447) Astrid Lindgren is the author of Pippy Longstalkings.

There is an amusement park in Sweden (http://www.alv.se/en) that contains “the farm” featured in the story.
