Since she was little, Lotta has loved hearing the handed-down stories of her Sami great-grandmother’s life travelling with reindeer. Now, finally, just before Christmas, Lotta and her parents are travelling over to Norway to meet her. Erika is as fascinating as Lotta has imagined, and has plenty of tales to tell her about life as it used to be on the snowy mountains and summer pastures of northern Norway. When, one evening, Lotta leaves the big family celebration to settle down for a nap, she wakes to find herself in one of Erika’s stories, where she becomes drawn into a magical, wintery world. But when she comes across a reindeer mother and calf who need her help, Lotta realises she must save them.
Curling up on a winter evening, this book will also take its readers on a journey to a richly-imagined Norwegian setting. This enchanting story of friendship and family values offers young readers a gentle, warm-hearted adventure which will live on in the imagination.
