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.
This is the first of a series about Caroline and her brother JP which promises to enchant young readers. Although the plot is predictable, the author has created a range of well-drawn characters and amusing situations. When Caroline convinces herself that a man living above her family in New York apartments is plotting murder, she enlists JP and a would-be jounalist friend to foil him in a story which has all the warmth, humour and charm expected from Lois Lowry.
