Merry Christmas, Little Leek

Frida Nilsson & Maria Nilsson Thore

Merry Christmas, Little Leek is the story of a little boy who wants two things for Christmas: a new bicycle and a father. His mother can’t afford a bike and can’t seem to bring about a dad, so Little Leek has to take matters into his own hands. But how far will he go to get what he really wants? And what if fathers can be not only lost, but found?

A funny and moving Advent story in 25 chapters – one chapter a day until Christmas –  by the brilliant Frida Nilsson.

Press voices
"A both fun and finely told story about friendship and seclusion, as well as the surprises that lie in store when one is open to what one's life has to offer." – Eva Tiselius, Hallå Höganäs

"A cozy, somewhat melancholy, and uplifting story we'll curl up on the sofa and start reading in a week! I hope my children enjoy it as much as I did." – Helena Eriksson, Barnboksprat

"The book is a wonderful one to read aloud.... The beautiful thing about it is that it's told wholly from the child's perspective, both in illustrations and text. It's about an actual six-year-old! And it tackles serious and everyday topics in an unforced way. There's plenty to talk about after each chapter!" – Stadsbiblioteket Göteborg
