Description

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.

Author Biography

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. Peter Bailey's illustrations are familiar from classics such as CIDER WITH ROSIE. His lovely line-drawing style lends itself to children's classics and he has worked with many of today's best-known children's authors, including Philip Pullman, Allan Ahlberg and Michael Morpurgo.
