Sonja and Christmas

Sofia Nordin & Kajsa Gordan

Soon it’s Christmas, and the Larsson family is getting ready in their own special way. They’re buying calendars to count down to the 24th (a few days late, when they’re on sale), they chop their own tree (among the trees that will be discarded either way), and at after-school, Sonja is making a really nice cardboard box for dad to keep his harmonicas in. She dresses it in the softest fabric she can find, so the harmonicas can gently lay in there, and she dreams of how happy dad is going to be.
Because, on Christmas, all the sibling’s dads come. Well except, Lissabon’s dad of course, because he’s in Portugal. But Sonja is worried – her dad often forgets things and sometimes he has to work instead of see her. What if he doesn’t come for Christmas? Then there’s no point in celebrating at all …

A very charming depiction of 7-year-old Sonja, and her everyday as one out of five kids of a single mother, by experienced children’s book writers Kajsa Gordan and Sofia Nordin. With vibrant and detailed illustrations by Caroline Röstlund.
