In the tradition of The Snowman and The Polar Express, this cozy Nordic tale filled with extraordinary photographs will have readers of all ages dreaming of magical places where wintry wishes come true.
Long ago, a little girl named Anja wanted to be one of Santa's elves. Since she lives somewhat near the North Pole, she thinks about it quite often. One holiday season, she decides to do something about it. So she tidies up her home, straps on her snowshoes, and heads out into the snowy landscape. Enlisting the help of some woodland friends on her wonder-filled journey, Anja makes her way to Santa to see if he might grant her this special Christmas wish.
"The Christmas Wish" has been embraced by my family as a new holiday tradition. The story captures the essence of what bravery and sheer determination can accomplish when you follow your dreams- no matter what your age. The heart-warming tale is beautifully complimented with the most stunning photography. This book is a delight for the ears and the eyes.
