Description

All the Christmases roll down toward the two-tongued sea, like a cold and headlong moon bundling down the sky that was our street; and they stop at the rim of the ice-edged, fish-freezing waves, and I plunge my hand in the snow and bring out whatever I can find ...Dylan Thomas's lyrical account of his childhood Christmases in a small Welsh town, featuring wolves, bears, hippos and Mrs Prothero's cat, has become deservedly famous. Beautifullly illustrated by award-winning artist Edward Ardizzone and presented in a delightful mini hardback edition, this classic is a perfect tiny gift or stocking-filler.show more

He is also famous for writing Under Milk Wood. Thomas died in 1953 in New York, one of Britain's best-loved writers. Edward Ardizzone won the inaugural KATE GREENAWAY MEDAL for Tim All Alone (Oxford, 1956), which he wrote and illustrated.
