9780863157851: A Calf for Christmas



It’s the last day of school before Christmas and snow is falling heavily. Johan heads to school on his sled, but he can’t stop thinking about the terrible thing that happened yesterday―his family’s only cow died, and they have no money to buy another.

The rich farmer Peter Jonsson has come to town today for the Christmas market. He buys a calf then, after spending some time in the local inn, loses it on the sleigh ride home! When Johan heads out to clear snow, what does he find?... Maybe he’ll have a happy Christmas after all.

A charming story by acclaimed author Astrid Lindgren, set in a traditional Swedish landscape.

(Ages 4–7)

About the Author:

Astrid Lindgren (1907-2002), born Astrid Anna Emilia Ericsson, was a well-known Swedish writer whose works renewed children's literature in Sweden and Scandinavia. Her best-known characters are independent and unconventional, including the untidy Pippi Longstocking, Karlsson, and Emil and his entertaining pranks.

Her books for children received many awards, including the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award for Pippi Longstocking in 1973; the Hans Christian Andersen Award in 1958; and the International Book Award from UNESCO in 1993. Astrid Lindgren's success as an author brought her into the public eye and she became involved in national debates on issues including taxation policies, nuclear power and the treatment of children, refugees and animals. She continued in public life until the age of ninety-one, when she suffered a stroke and stopped appearing in public. Astrid Lindgren passed away at her home in Dalagatan.

Marit Törnqvist was born in 1964 in Uppsala, Sweden, and studied illustration at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. She divides her time between the Netherlands and Sweden. In 2011, she was awarded a Golden Plaque from the Biennial of Illustration Bratislava, one of the most prestigious children's illustration awards. She has illustrated several of Astrid Lindgren's picture books, including A Calf for Christmas, Goran's Great Escape, and In the Land of Twilight, all published by Floris Books.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Johan's family is distraught: the cow on which they depended has died. Meanwhile, rich neighbor Peter Jonsson spends a self- indulgent day in town at the tavern, then sets out for home. In his inebriated state, he is seized with terror at seeing a heifer he's bought peering from her sack; he throws her from his sleigh, and young Johan finds her by the road. In the morning, the heifer's owner is discovered, but Peter is so chagrined by his own behavior that he gives the heifer to Johan. The rather long story here is part gentle satire, part sober realism, and part the age-old message of poetic justice rendering good from iniquity--not, perhaps, what readers will expect in a Christmas book from the author of The Tomten (1979), but a well- told story. T”rnqvist's watercolors are beautifully observed, a fine complement to this unusual glimpse of rural Sweden at the turn of the century. (Young reader/Picture book. 5-10) -- Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
