My Christmas wish is that this book arrives at my door very soon! Sadly, it doesn't look like Santa is going to make it by today. I couldn't find it at any local bookstore, and even the elves at Amazon have run out of copies.
The Christmas Wish is a beautiful picture book with amazing composite photos that, with the help of Photoshop (aka - Fairytaleshop), blend winter landscapes, Nordic animals, and a very cute little girl dressed with authentic traditional Norwegian garb and gear. The book is the first of a forthcoming trilogy from Twin Cities husband and wife team Lori Evert and Per Breiehagen, and the photos feature their daughter Anja.
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.Listen to an Interview with the Authors on MPR
