Waterstones Says

With evocative illustrations from the great Edward Ardizzone, this beautiful mini-edition of Dylan Thomas’ heartwarming recollections of his festive childhood in Wales is an enduring literary treasure that makes for a perfect Christmas gift. 

The timeless classic story of Dylan Thomas's childhood Christmas memories, featuring the wonderful artwork of Kate Greenaway medallist, Edward Ardizzone in this mini hardback edition.

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.
