4.0 out of 5 stars
A refreshing combination of pictures and words, 16 April 2014
This beautiful, moving story is told through a mixture of well-constructed verse and wonderful illustrations. It's a story for our time, about those on the outside of society looking in, as told through the voice of a Christmas ghost. The verse and the rhythm of the writing draws you in, and i can only think there is something about The Prayer that will appeal to both adults and children alike. Definitely a book to recommend!
