Michel: Christmas in Lönneberga
Astrid Lindgren Stage
Recommended for Kita/Vorschulkinder , Primary school , 4+ , 1.-6. Klasse
Christmas is just around the corner and preparations are in full swing at Katthultshof in Lönneberga but not everyone is having a good time. The inhabitants of the village's poor house are not treated well by the poor house's owner Maduskan. She only gives them salted herring on Christmas Eve and keeps for herself the food that Michel's mother sent. To get around Maduskan, Michel has an idea... he'll invite the poor to the Christmas family feast. He captures extra food in his wolf pit and everyone is able to enjoy the Christmas they deserve.
A touching story based on the work by Astrid Lindgren, which shows the gap in society between rich and poor and how important it is to share what we've got.
