Block's perfect Christmas!

Block loves Christmas! But why isn’t Spruce in the Christmas mood?

Block loves Christmas, and at last December has come! There’s just one problem: Spruce doesn’t want to do Christmassy things. He doesn’t want to listen to Christmas music and he doesn’t want to make paper chains! He doesn’t even want to decorate the gingerbread house! Block comes up with a plan for Spruce to get his Christmas feeling back again.

Åshild Kanstad Johnsen (born 1978) has had great success with her children’s books both at home and abroad. The books have become especially popular in China and Japan, where you’ll also find Block stage shows, a Block café, soft toys and much more besides.
