We Must Save Christmas!/Vi måste rädda julen!

It’s the first day of Sam’s favourite month, December. All classmates will take turns to tear out one date at a time from the calendar. Whoever gets Christmas Eve needs to keep it safe – there won’t be any Christmas otherwise, says the teacher. And then the Christmas Eve page accidentally ends up in the washing machine. Sam and his friend Esme decide to do whatever it takes to save Christmas.

We Must Save Christmas is a fast-paced and fun adventure to save Christmas. This involves rushing to make festive decorations, eating icing and slimy herring, and dressing up as a Tomte on a daily basis. This charming and touching tale speaks to readers of all ages.
