‘One Christmas was so much like another, in those years around the sea town corner now…’
Hiding behind Advent door number 17, we bring you A Child’s Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas, a hearty slice of nostalgia for what is a very nostalgic time of year.
This magical account of Dylan Thomas’s own childhood, and of Christmas Day in a small Welsh town has become a modern classic. Featuring tales and rememberings of Christmastime in the valley, of wolves, bears, hippos and Mrs Prothero’s cat, this lyrical piece of prose captures the wonder of Christmas for children and reminds grown ups of that wonder. Wonderful festive bedtime reading for little ones and big ones alike!
