Product Details


★ ”A worthy match of art and story, sure to become a favorite edition each holiday season.” Booklist, Starred Review; Editor’s Choice selection

★ ”This Christmas treasure of both Hyman’s illustrations and Thomas’ eloquent prose will draw children into the world of Wales. A book to delight both children and parents.”  —School Library Journal, Starred Review

“Illustrations by award-winning artist Trina Schart Hyman bring new life to this charming story in which Thomas reminisces about his childhood Christmas memories. This book is best shared with the entire family.” The Washington Post

“Simple, lyrical, poignant, uplifting–this is a true holiday rarity, one that shouldn’t be missed.” —Common Sense Media

“This lovely little memoir is also a terrific way to introduce readers to Dylan Thomas’s work… [T]he reason to choose this edition rather than any others…is the charming artwork. The illustrations by Trina Schart Hyman…will enchant readers with their old-fashioned look and charming details. This is a perfect holiday gift.”  —Manhattan Book Review

“Hyman’s illustrations make this book one with general audience appeal at Christmas–or any time.” —The Horn Book

“The poet’s voice is heard again in the paen to the long-ago holiday in his Welsh neighborhood. It is impressively real in the paintings and ink drawings that illustrate Thomas’ well-loved memoir and surpass Hyman’s previous award winners.” —Publishers Weekly

“Children will love to cuddle close and view the detailed illustrations which expand this classic, giving it added continuity and depth.”  —Los Angeles Times Book Review
