The Wish Books

The Christmas Wish is the story of Anja, a brave and kind child, who sets out on an adventure to make her dream of helping Santa Claus come true. With the generous help of many animal friends – from a bright cardinal to a strong horse to a gentle polar bear – Anja joyfully travels the snowy terrain to meet her Christmas hero.

The book’s heartwarming narrative was spun from the creative imagination of prop, set, and wardrobe stylist Lori Evert when her husband, award-winning photographer Per Breiehagen, captured their real-life daughter, Anja, in a magical image with a reindeer. The trio embarked on a family project to bring the timeless Nordic story to life by illustrating it with breathtaking photographs starring the kind and adventurous Anja.

Now admirers of the beloved holiday children’s book can embrace and share the story of The Christmas Wish through charming gifts and decorative accessories that reflect the book’s characters and magical adventures. Per’s captivating photography is featured on wall art, mugs and note cards, while plush toys, snow globes and ornaments depict characters and scenes from the story.
