The loveliest Christmas treat
on 7 November 2005
I've already bought this wonderful book for my children's stockings. But I partly got it for myself (!) because it's something that I could happily read to them time and again. Carol Ann Duffy's reworking of the classic poem 'A Night Before Chirstmas' is brilliant. It's sweet and magical but also witty, modern and deep. I can imagine it becoming a bit of a Chirstmas ritual as each year my kids return to it they'll get more out of it. The illustrations are gorgeous too.
