On the front of BfK this month is the cover of On Christmas Eve by Peter Collington - see his accompanying piece in this issue. The book was published by Heinemann (the paperback version is now available) and the animated film will be shown on TV at Christmas - all details are given at the foot of Peter Collington's delightful double-page spread. We thank Heinemann for their help in using this illustration.
Here are four expressively and crisply narrated unabridged stories with a Christmas theme. Ursula Moray Williams' 'The Good Little Christmas Tree' about come-alive fir trees takes up one side whilst on the other are three real-life stories by Tony Bradman, Pamela Oldfield and Elizabeth Laird. Is Father Christmas a grown-up dressed-up or a real Father Christmas? Why does Grandma get a leather jacket with studs on as a present? These are the sort of stories full of domestic detail loved by 4-8 year-olds. A refreshing Christmas cassette to be enjoyed all year round.
