Kids Short Story Advent Calendar

  • Impact & Sustainability 
  • Product Details

  • Who says adults should have all the fun? After years of demand (from kids and grown-ups alike), we’re proud to finally introduce our Kids’ Short Story Advent Calendar—a fun and exciting way for younger readers to count down the days until Christmas. As with all of our calendars, each booklet is sealed, meaning that you won’t know what’s inside until you crack the seal each morning, starting December 1. (To give you a hint, expect stories about spaceships, necklaces, best friends, creepy museums, scarecrows, fairies, and more.)

    The KSSAC is a deluxe box set of 25 individually bound booklets with cover art by South African illustrator Fran Labuschagne. It includes stories from some of the very best writers around, including: Kenneth Oppel (Inkling), Beatrix Potter (The Tale of Peter Rabbit), Terry Pratchett (Discworld), Jerry Spinelli (Maniac Magee), Jacqueline Woodson (Brown Girl Dreaming) and more!

    Best for ages 9+


In a world where print material is rapidly losing ground to all things digital, we remain stubborn, true believers in the power of the physical book. Our titles are driven by design and full of the unexpected—both the words on the page, and the look and feel of the page itself. We're suckers for unusual lengths, formats, perspectives, and ideas.

Hingston & Olsen Publishing is an independent press based in Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Founded in the summer of 2015 by author Michael Hingston and designer Natalie Olsen as a means of finding out just how far an untested idea could be taken, H&O launched its debut title, the 2015 Short Story Advent Calendar, three months later.
