A Completely Ordinary Chrismas with the Jansson Family
A Completely Ordinary Chrismas with the Jansson FamilyMartin Widmark, illustrated by Pelle Forshed
An extra crazy and enjoyable Christmas celebration takes place in Martin Widmark’s story about the loopy upside-down Jansson family where anything can happen.
Christmas approaches and at the Jansson family’s house, preparations are in full swing. But it’s not so easy for Kajsa and Alvin to keep track of their teasing, mischievous parents. Does that sound odd? Not at all, because this is a hilarious, bizarre story about reversed roles.
The children Kajsa and Alvin take on the responsibilities of parents while their mother and father shake off theirs. Now it is the parents who chop down the family Christmas tree in the park, wish for a snow-blower and a TV for Christmas and share Christmas activities with their neighbours who are in exactly the same family situation. And when great-great-grandpa, the general, is to be Father Christmas on Christmas Eve, well… almost everything goes wrong.
