Christmas is coming but Anna and Michael’s village is cut off by deep snow. They’re worried that Santa Claus won’t reach them, so they send him a special wish.

Santa Claus hears their wish and brings the village a surprise. Can the neighbors work together to reach their Christmas gift?

A beautifully illustrated festive story about hope and community spirit, with a dash of traditional seasonal magic from much-loved illustrations of Maja Dusíková.

(Ages 3 to 6 years) 

“This is a beautiful wintry story...about the power of community—and a cup of tea!” —JUNOMagazine 

“Illustrated with warm and hazy paintings that remind of traditional Christmas tales.” —Foreword Reviews 

“Watercolors in soft-focus lend an intimacy to what reads like a folktale, with little animal friends in the illustrations for young children to find. A sweet message about the meaning of Christmas giving.” —Kirkus
