Christmas Roses: Legends for Advent

This book is a collection of fairy tales which tell about the time around Christmas in true, clear images – Selma Lagerlöf, Jeanna Oterdahl and Dan Lindholm are among the twelve authors. There are some long dramatic stories to be read to the older children over several days and there are shorter legends, that may be told time and again to the younger children – by candle light.

This book includes the story The Legend of the Christmas Rose by Selma Lagerlöf.

About the Author

Selma Ottilia Lovisa Lagerlöf (1858-1940) was born in Mårbacka, in the province of Värmland in southern Sweden. Lagerlöf’s work is deeply rooted in Nordic legends and history. She rejected the dominating realistic movement and wrote her novels in a romantic and imaginative style about the peasant life and landscape of Northern Sweden. She wrote several books for children, the most popular of which is The Wonderful Adventures of Nils. In 1909, she became the first woman writer to win the Nobel Prize for Literature, and, in 1914, she was appointed a member of the Swedish Academy.
