Sticking to an (unintentional) Scandinavian theme, may we present to you one of the coolest books on the market this Christmas, The Fir Tree by Sanna Annukka and Hans Christian Andersen.
At its heart is a classic, Hans Christian Andersen’s tale of naive greed and dissatisfaction. But this is no ordinary reissue. This 69-page cloth-bound book features the stunning illustrations of Finnish illustrator Sanna Annukka, known for her work with the likes of Marimekko and the wider media too (she did the artwork for Keane’s album, Under the Iron Sea for example).
A great thing to read with your children, as well as to look at and own – it sells for £8.99.
