12/17/13 Update: Giveaway over. I'll let the photo illustrations speak for themselves:
A FAMILY PROJECT:
The Christmas Wish is a gift from husband and wife team, Lori Evert and Per Breiehagen to us and their daughter, Anja, the main character who's adorably dressed up in traditional Norwegian garb!
From the book jacket:
"Author Lori Evert is a prop, set and wardrobe stylist who loves books, nature and being Anja's mother. She was so inspired by the beauty and magic of an image of Anja with a reindeer that she began spinning a narrative about who they might be and why they were together. Thus began the four-year family project that is The Christmas Wish.
Award-winning photographer Per Breiehagen grew up in the small mountain town of Al, Norway. He spent his childhood exploring the dramatic landscapes near his home...Assignments for clients like National Geographic, The New York Times Magazine, and Audubon have brought Per to some of the most remote snow-and-ice-covered regions in the world...Anja's love of the outdoors and winter is a great inspiration for Per."
You can order The Christmas Wish yourself here from Amazon. (Chinaberry has sold out of their copies.)
