THE CHRISTMAS WISH
The Christmas Wish is a fairy tale set in 18th-century Norway. Stunning photographs illustrate this story of a little girl who wishes to become one of Santa's Elves. She skis out alone, and with the help of a succession of friendly animals, finds Santa Claus and the true meaning of Christmas.
Inspired by his native Norway and his snow loving daughter, Anja, award winning photographer Per Breiehagen created a series of striking images of Anja dressed in traditional Norwegian clothing and Sami reindeer shoes. The photos showed Anja interacting with reindeer and other Arctic animals. The response to these images on Per’s website was beyond expectations. People from all corners of the world wanted to see more.
Lori Evert, Anja’s mother, was so inspired by the beauty and magic of the cover image of Anja and the reindeer that she wrote a narrative about who they might be and why they were there. The family then created more pictures to illustrate the story.
The Christmas Wish, which began as a family Christmas card, has evolved into a beautifully crafted book for children and adults alike.
