Dramatic landscapes and incredible sights litter the forty-plus pages of Anja's adventure in the frozen wonderlands which she must traverse to find Santa Claus. There is a magical quality of incomparable humility in the naturally rich expanses captured on each leg of Anja's journey. She encounters beautiful and significant creatures along the way such as a cardinal, a reindeer, even a polar bear. In this particular Nordic folktale styling, it is important to recognize the messages of the animal guides.
