It's summer in the forest and the rabbit children are looking forward to their first Midsummer party. Owl, who knows everything, says Midsummer is a time for dancing, love, and magic. What a fun time they will have!

Then a terrible storm sweeps through the forest, and the woodland animals must find shelter at Grump the Tomte's cottage. With the forest turned upside down, will the little rabbits still be able to arrange the famous Midsummer party?

This follow-up to The Yule Tomte and the Little Rabbits is an enchanting story in twenty-one chapters, which can be read through June to conclude on Midsummer's Day.

Ulf Stark masterfully weaves together drama and comedy to create a heartfelt and truly magical story. Award-winning illustrator Eva Eriksson brings the charming characters to life with delightful seasonal artwork.
