Think Advent calendars, but with one chapter per night instead of chocolates. A much-loved tradition in Sweden, where this lovely book originates, now translated into Maltese. There’s a chapter to read every December night, all the way to Christmas Eve where all will be revealed. This Christmas where most of us will not be able to travel, this atmospheric and humorous story of Rutan and her friends, will transport us all the way to Sweden and their seasonal traditions.

It’s December … but everyone except Karl and Martina seems to have clean forgotten all about Christmas. No decorations, no gift-wrapping, nothing. What’s going on? Will the 25th December be just any other day? And where’s the magic in that? Karl and Martina are determined not to let this happen, at any cost. A beautiful picture book with traditional Maltese setting, perfect for children aged 5-8.
What if, one Christmas Eve, Father Christmas were to get the flu and end up feverish in bed? Cue his wife, Mrs Claus, to save the day … or rather, the night. With the help of their trustworthy elves, Mrs Claus packs up all the presents and sets off with reindeers and sleigh. This feminist take on Christmas is a twenty-first century must, for children aged 5-8.
