The Odd Christmas Present

Josefine Sundström, illustrated by Emma Göthner

A sparkling everyday story about an unusual Christmas at Sagas grandfather’s house on the countryside.

This story is about a day when Saga is celebrating Christmas with her family and relatives at her grandfather’s house. The car is packed with linens, Christmas presents and food. It is wonderful and exciting with Christmas. But what is the strange Christmas present Mum and Dad have fastened on the ceiling of the car? And can Santa Claus also die, just like Saga’s grandmother did a long time ago? And who is really that Santa Claus who gives out presents when Sagas grandfather goes out to park the tractor in the garage?

This is the first picture book about Saga on Sunflower Way. It is an extended illustrated version of a story that previously was included in the chapter book Saga Stories: Balloon Longing, Hide and Seek and Two Elves in a Ditch.
