Synopsis

Short Christmas Stories by Maggie Pearson

A wonderful seasonal addition to the popular SHORT series. Over forty stories in one book - all of them very, very short! None of the stories are more than two pages long, but each of them is special and thought-provoking. Drawn from a range of sources, including stories from around the world about Christmas gift-givers, Christmas legends and Christmas traditions, as well as folk tales, narrative jokes, true Christmas stories, and original stories too, the stories are ideal for use in the classroom as well as for sleepovers, Advent bedtime stories, and just for dipping into.

Reviews

A real eclectic mixture with old and new stories ... they are great to read aloud and share. Primary Times

About the Author

Whilst her three children were growing up, Maggie Pearson held a variety of jobs - including bar maid, librarian and freelance journalist - but she now pursues a career as a highly-successful children's writer. Her first novel, Owl-Light, was shortlisted for the WH Smith Mind-boggling Book Award. She lives mostly in a sixteenth-century cottage in Suffolk with her husband, two cats and a goat, and sometimes in the French Pyrenees. She spent years compiling this extraordinary collection of folk tales as a labour of love. She has also written A Slip in Time and The Eyes of Doctor Dee for the Victorian Flashbacks series, Is There Anybody There? for the Wired Up series, and the folk tale collection The House of the Cats.
