Set in the enchanted Island Kingdom, The Magic Compass is a delightful Christmas adventure for children, to be read aloud, one chapter at a time, on each of the days of December leading up to Christmas.

The Island Kingdom is inhabited by humans, trolls and nisses (elves) who embark on spirited, sometimes perilous escapades as they anticipate and prepare for Christmas. Day by day as the story unfolds, many mysterious and wondrous things are revealed: the secrets of the Nisse Hand Book; the trolls’ Vat of Boiling Milk; the wizard’s Book of Charms; and of course the Magic Compass.
