A Very Small and famous book- I found it for grandchildren's Advent book parcels last year but it isn't really a book for very small children. So I'll keep it for when they older.
Dylan Thomas originally wrote this little work of prose for radio in 1952 and it then went into book form and has been reprinted many times since.
"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. Beautifully illustrated by award-winning artist Edward Ardizzone, this classic edition is beloved by fans of Thomas's work and a perfect Christmas gift for young readers building their own childhood Christmas memories.
And here are the four Christmas crime books that I've read and would like to pass on.
a comment if you would like one, say which one unless you don't mind (UK only please) and I'll pick out
names tomorrow and put comment moderation on so you can leave an
address. The books are wrapped ready to send so once I get names and addresses they'll soon be in the post before Christmas.
