Description

Dylan Thomas, one of the greatest poets of the twentieth century, captures a child's eye view of a magical Christmas Day in a small Welsh town, with uncles and aunties, sing songs, presents (some useful, some not) and lots of snow. The beautiful, lyrical prose is vividly brought to life by Edward Ardizzone's wonderful line illustrations. This modern classic which celebrates 50 years since first publication, will delight everyone with its marvellous tales of the fun and excitement of what it is like to be a child at Christmas.show more
