Krampus, He's The Lord of Yule, but you don't have to save this one until Yuletide.

Krampus: The Yule LordKrampus: The Yule Lord by Brom
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was a gem, the sort that you come across on accident;or at least I did.  Browsing through our library I was lucky to find some good soul donated it.

A perfect fable set around Yuletide/Christmas-y stories but by no means relegated to that time of year.  Brom very cleverly plays of Norse inspired stories to make an entirely new persona for Krampus, the mythological god you don't know as much about that came before dear Santy Claus.

Also enjoyable was the wonderful illustrating done by Brom which made me search out more of his work.  I love his storytelling both in written word and in inked out characters.  I cannot wait to find more Brom-ish bits.

From now on we shall be putting out treats and shoes thanks to Brom, sounds more fun anyway for our Heathen-ish selves.
