Ugh I hate your grammer and spelling errors... e___e
Even if you aren't Swedish, this is a wonderful book, illustrated with color postcards of Sweden and the the little Christmas elves. It has very rich illustrations and the text is fun and interesting. A beautiful book to give or set out during the holidays. Fun to just pick up now and then and look at. Definitely a good choice for Scandinavian friends and family!
A magical time of the year with the thrill and excitement we felt when we were young. Now, the blessed opportunity to share with comtemporary generations. This beautiful book helps us to experience the rich and fascinating Swedish Christmas traditions as seen through unforgettable old illustrations. Anyone will recognize the magic as it is reproduced with verve and joy! Dag Stomberg
