The Truth About Krampus

Written by Charlotte Le Nasa
July 25, 2021

Pre-teen Edda believes the church officials running her medieval Austrian village aren’t being honest about the magical creature Krampus. When tragedy strikes, Edda is determined to find out the truth: Is Krampus the Helpful Beast still out there? And if he takes her to the top of the fabled mountain, what will she see? Navigating the dangerous, magical, “Dark Wood,” Edda must find the right tools to face life’s heart-wrinkling moments and find the voice she’s been missing all along.
