It’s Christmas time in Iceland and Greela the giant troll sets off with a sack slung over her shoulder, searching for naughty,lazy or rude children to eat. But Greela’s not the only one to look out for; just as mischievous are her 13 children, the Yule Lads.

A story in the tradition of the Brothers Grimm, Greela and the 13 Yule Lads uses music, storytelling, magic and puppets to tell the tales that have frightened and delighted children (and adults) in Iceland for centuries.
