Publisher's Summary

In a dusty corner of an old bookstore, young Joachim unearths an Advent calendar. As he opens the first door, he discovers the amazing story of Elisabet, a little girl who took an amazing trip back in time to be present at the birth of Jesus. Each subsequent door reveals more of Elisabet's story, and the listener gains new insight to the Nativity and the true meaning of Christmas.

Good family book

Gaarder's style is different, has a "European" feel, and is a very good book for family holiday reading. I enjoyed it.
