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.
