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.
Dark, rich, night-time colours and a repetitive rhyme asking 'Where does the bear/monkey/stray dog/seagull go?' is the them of this book and, as the reader travels through it, he/she wonders where all these animals do go. The answer, of course, is that they go home to bed... and are all tucked up safely when they get there. Picture Puffin at its best.
