The Name Bearer

Maja Lunde, Hans Jørgen Sandnes

A new magical tale from the author of The Snow Sister
(sold to 26 languages!)

Everyone has heard about Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. But very few have heard about the Name Bearer. Even though he is the one that gives every child a name. Probably it is because he is so very shy. The Name Bearer lives in the tiny gap between the sea and the sky. Many different names bloom in his garden, and every day he travels out into the world delivering name-flowers to newborn babies. Life is peaceful and secure. But one day something terrible happens: a child is about to be given the wrong name! Now the Name Bearer has to act quickly and do something he is really quite afraid of.

The perfect gift for a birth, baptism or naming ceremony, and for all children who wonder how they got their name.
