När Johan fick en liten kalv

A Calf for Christmas

Astrid Lindgren

Illustrated by

Marit Törnqvist

This is a wonderful new edition of the classic picture book När Bäckhultarn for till stan. Little Johan’s family have lost their only cow, Embla. Johan sits watching the snow fall and thinking about the tragic event. All is quiet until a rich farmer rides past with a herd of twenty cows. How unfair, Johan thinks to himself. Little does he know that when the farmer makes his way home later that night, something will end up in the ditch, something that will ease the loss of his beloved Embla.

Marit Törnqvist has also illustrated Kalle the Little Bullfighter (The Day Adam Got Mad), available in the same new design.
