Published in English under the title A Grandmother for Christmas (Toronto: Owl Kids, 2005)

Jérémie wants a grandmother for Christmas. He wonders where on earth his friends' grandmothers come from, who visit just for this special holiday, their arms full of presents. Since they are coming by airplane from so far away, they must be coming from the North Pole! He quickly writes down his wish and sends it to Santa Claus. Will he get what he has asked for? This charming little story is enlivened with delightful watercolour illustrations.
