5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal present or general read
If you love or hate Christmas, believe or disbelieve passionately, or simply value short, pithy poems, this book will surely be a treasure for you. It's funny, irreverent and godly all at once. Can be given to the aged aunt or the stroppy brat in the sure knowledge that it will make both chuckle and feel it was written for them. I have bought 3 copies (and no, I don't...

3.0 out of 5 stars An interesting collection.
An interesting collection, some whimsical, others with a deep spiritual meaning. The collection would certainly be of interest in those looking for unusual readings for Christmas.

4.0 out of 5 stars Xmas with Fanthorpe, 3 Nov 2009

This review is from: Christmas Poems (Paperback)
This was bought as a gift for a friend. The book is a slim but well presented volume. I knew only a little of the poet's work previously to this but there is more to the collection than meets the eye- it is thought provoking at a time of year when everything tends towards the formulaic. A good purchase.

This review is from: Christmas Poems (Paperback)
A very minor poet, but some witty and charming poems among them. I had met with Fanthorpe in collections of Xmas poems on the internet, and hers stood out among the best.
