Synopsis

Bring in the Holly by Charles Causely, Charles Causley

Twelve poems to celebrate Christmas from the master poet Charles Causley, including five new poems written especially for this collection. Each poem explores a different facet of the Christmas season - from the challenge of 'The Ballad of the Bread Man' and the joyful exuberance of 'Angels' Song' to the lighthearted 'Parson's Lea' and the wry humor of 'Christmas Pudding'. The poems are perfectly matched by Lisa Kopper's rich and vibrant illustrations. This is a collection that truly captures the spirit of Christmas, a book to keep and treasure.
