Fritz and Gretl's father is very ill and can only be cured by a magical Christmas rose from the Winter King. With the help of some forest animals and a snow giant, Fritz and Gretl bravely make the difficult journey to the Winter King's fortress. There they learn that they must get the blessing of the Christ Child, a Christmas angel, in order for the rose to bloom and cure their father. This rediscovered German story is full of classic Christmas charm. In mini-chapters, readers share the advent of Christmas from December 6th, Saint Nikolaus Day, to December 24th, when Germans celebrate Christmas.

Else Wenz-Vietor (1882-1973) was one of the most productive and well-known illustrators in Germany in the 1920s and 1930s. She illustrated more than one hundred picture books, many of which are now valuable collectibles. Little is known about German author Sepp Bauer and how he came to write The Christmas Rose, though it is clear he went on to write three sports books for young readers in the 1930s.
