Synopsis

A Child's Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas

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. Beautifullly illustrated by award-winning artist Edward Ardizzone and presented in a delightful mini hardback edition, this classic is a perfect tiny gift or stocking-filler.

About the Author

Dylan Thomas was born in 1914 in Swansea. During his lifetime he wrote many great poems, including 'Fern Hill', 'The Hunchback in the Park' and 'Do not go gentle into that good night'. He is also famous for writing Under Milk Wood. Thomas died in 1953 in New York, one of Britain's best-loved writers. Edward Ardizzone won the inaugural KATE GREENAWAY MEDAL for Tim All Alone (Oxford, 1956), which he wrote and illustrated. He died in 1973, and remains one of the most beloved and well-respected children's illustrators of the 20th century.
