This magazine was published in Danish and Norwegian editions - the
Danish one was called "BÝrnenes Juleroser", while the Norwegian
edition was "Barnas Juleroser".  Both titles can be translated as "The
Children's Christmas Roses".

The comprehensive database of Scandinavian booksellers
( does have a listing for the Danish 1927
edition (abridged and translated):

"BÝrnenes Juleroser 1927.  NOK 90"

These listings appear for some Norwegian editions (abridged and translated):

"Barnas Juleroser 1923.  38 pages.  NOK 493.

Barnas Juleroser 1923.  Original binding, with supplemental sheets. 
Good condition.  NOK 500

Barnas Juleroser 1924.  Good condition.  NOK 300"

As you can see, the Danish copy (of unknown condition) sells at NOK 90
(US$ 13), while similar Norwegian editions (in good condition) sell
for up to NOK 500 (US$ 70).  These are selling prices, a bookseller in
Scandinavia will usually pay you anything from 25-75% when buying the
magazine from you - if she is interested.

I hope this answer is useful for you.  If not, please request an
answer clarification.

SOUnds Danish to me  -Scandinavian in any case.  Something like 
"The Child's Christmas ...(Roses?)  I thing "Bornenes"  should be "Barnenes",
also because your other question is about a children's mag.
If the the nouns within the sentences are capitalized, it's Danish, probably

HI again, ebc-ga,
I now think this is Norwegian, as explained in my second comment to
your other question.  Answers about authors/artists would be
interesting here too.
Oh, I know of a bookstore in Oslo that has old children's books, up
behind the castle, but how to find out its name ...?
If you give me some more info, maybe I can ask my cousin.
