About the Author
John Masefield was a novelist, journalist and poet. He won the Edmond de Polignac prize in 1912, and was appointed Poet Laureate in 1930 - a role he performed for the next 37 years. Masefield wrote 21 novels, including two children's books featuring Kay Harker, "The Midnight Folk" (1927) and "The Box of Delights" (1935). He died in 1967, and his ashes were interred in Poets' Corner in Westminster Abbey.

With such luminaries of stage and screen as the plummy Donald Sinden, Lionel Jeffries, the incomparable Spike Milligan and Celia Imrie; this is a superbly realised audio CD; lie back, close your eyes, and be transported to a snowy world of wolves, cars that turn into aeroplanes, humbugs, possets, and a cosy 1930s Christmas world. Superb.
Come on BBC lets have some more gems like this.
My father loved it as a child (1930s), so did I (1960s) and my own children, too (1990s). Not quite as good as Masefield's "The Midnight Folk" (the ending is a disappointment) but still worth five stars. People who know and love these two books are a fortunate lot. Join us!
