24 Festive Tasks: Door 15 - Sinterklaas / St. Nicholas - Tasks

Task 1:  Write a book wish list to St. Nick.

 

(wip)

 

Task 2: You are King / Queen for the day and can have 3 ‘wishes’:  one for yourself, one for your community (any version) and one for the world: What are they?

 

(wip)

 

Task 3: If your holiday family traditions should include bowls or plates filled with gingerbread, cookies, oranges / tangerines, chocolate, nuts and the like, share a photo with us!

Task 4: List your 3 favorite books involving children being rescued from serious peril.

3. Les Miserables

 

Book: with an orange or red cover or with nuts, chocolate or coins on the cover, set in The Netherlands or Germany, by a Dutch or German author, or with canals or beer on the cover.

 

I have read two books that fit this task as both were written by German authors (one originally published by a Dutch publisher): Der Fromme Tanz by Klaus Mann and Fabian by Erich Kaestner. (I haven't written reviews for either of the two, yet, so no links.)
