    A Children's Literary Christmas: An Anthology

    An enchanting anthology that follows in the success of A Literary Christmas, this title features festive celebrations from some of the world’s most beloved children’s writers and illustrators, including A.A. Milne, C.S. Lewis and Matt Haig, as well as Dylan Thomas and Laurie Lee. It's been compiled and edited by a leading Children’s author.

    Immerse yourself in festive magic with this brand-new collection of the finest Christmas stories and poetry for children from some of the greatest writers in the English language. Inspired by the approach and style of the British Library’s 2018 bestseller A Literary Christmas, this carefully chosen anthology celebrates the wonders of the Christmas season, following the escapades of Santa Claus and adventures of the frost fairies. Divided into five sections, this anthology of historical and modern stories covers festive traditions, fairytales, gift-giving and family fun. Timeless favourites from Charles Dickens, Clement C. Moore and Louisa May Alcott are presented alongside award-winning and contemporary voices, such as Matt Haig, Swapna Haddow and Shirley Hughes. This treasure trove of extracts is beautifully presented with illustrations from the collections of the Library as well as a few pieces of original artwork.
