5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas stories 26 Nov 2010
By Parents in Touch TOP 500 REVIEWER
This is another in Usborne's series of illustrated stories and is a real Christmas treat! Share in the magic of Christmas with familiar tales such as 'Twas the Night before Christmas and A Christmas Carol. Then revel in some less familiar stories such as Santa's Day Off and Snowy and Icy. Snow White and Puss in Boots are traditional pantomime stories, hence their inclusion. The mix of stories make this a book which will appeal to everyone and children will want to revisit it year after year as part of their seasonal fun. Each story is illustrated in a different way which perfectly reflects the story and the abundant pictures really bring the stories to life. I love this series of chunky well-presented books, ideal for sharing and for individual reading. A really well thought-out selection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Usborne Illustrated Stories for Christmas 20 Dec 2010
Great little illustrated story book for Christmas which keeps our son asking for another story to be read to him, the reason I have given it four stars is that in the web page description it states there are "over 20 tales for Christmas" in the book but the one we received only has 9 tales inside.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book 10 Dec 2011

Just received the book and I am very impressed with its quality. Colourful pictures accompany all the stories. The book is in very handy size, especially for young, small hands and provides a great read for both parents and the children. Would definitely reccommend it for a Christmas time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas stories, not just for children ;) 18 Nov 2010
This is a great little book, well presented with lovely picture to help bring the stories to life. Not sure why people say there are some now Christmas stories included? Puss in the boots is a traditional story to be told at Christmas in England and not just kept to a book as it is acted out in pantomimes and the same can be said about Snow White.
Fantastic book, as soon as you get it you will want to start to reading it. :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite Christmas 28 Jan 2010
By Alison
I bought this book with the intention of giving bedtime storytime during advent a more seasonal feeling for my two daughters (four and five years). Expecting nothing less from Usborne, and not being disappointed, this is a lovely book with some classic, well-written stories. My one thought, though, when going through the index, was that there are stories included here that I in no way connect with Christmas - Snow White and the Seven Dwarves and Puss in Boots. So if you're not too worried about a Christmas story book containing non-Christmas themed stories, go ahead and buy this book, it's a lovely book and my daughters certainly love it. If you want something exclusively Christmassy you'll need to look elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Christmas Bedtime Tales 20 Dec 2010
A great mix of nine Christmas stories. Some are old favourites, others are less well known.

Twas the Night Before Christmas - Clement Clarke Moore
A Christmas Carol
The Elf and the Toymaker - Russell Punter
Snowy and Icy - Russell Punter
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Santa's Day Off - Russell Punter
Puss in Boots
Thw Snow Queen
East of the Sun, West of the Moon - Scandinavian Folk Tale.

If you have never used an Usbourne Illustrated Story Book, the tales are all well illustrated, and the stories are abridged sufficiently to make decent bedtime stories. Depending on how much you devote to bedtime, some of the tales will need to be split over two nights.
