Dylan Thomas's classic account of his childhood Christmases, newly issued with full colour illustrations by Peter Bailey in this beautiful, cloth-bound hardback gift edition for Thomas's centenary.

All the Christmases roll down toward the two-tongued sea, like a cold and headlong moon bundling down the sky that was our street...

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. This stunning re-designed cloth-bound hardback edition celebrates the centenary of his birth, and features brand-new full-colour artwork from illustrator Peter Bailey.

A beautiful gift edition of a classic work from one of Britain's best-loved writers, this is the perfect Christmas present for young readers building their own childhood Christmas memories.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Dylan Thomas's classic recollections of his own childhood, A Child's Christmas in Wales, has been republished with beautiful illustrations to mark the centenary of his birth. Perfect for reading aloud -- Sunday Express * Sunday Express *
A beautiful new presentation of Dylan Thomas' heartfelt reminiscences of Christmas accompanied by charming and perfectly matched illustrations.... This is a highly evocative little book that revels in the joys of Christmas and reading it creates a real feeling of warmth and comfort inside and brilliantly wakes up the inner child, a real pleasure to read. The cloth bound hardback presentation of this book is great and this particular edition is sure to become a treasured possession in many households. It is one of those books that a child will cling on to as they grow up and cherish for a lifetime to one day pass on to their own children. * THE BOOKBAG *
