How can it be that we are here, 24th December already? It’s flown by so quickly and I do hope you’ve enjoyed the books I picked out for this different take on the advent calendar and perhaps you even went out and bought some of them? I know I did. All that can be left to say is have a very merry Christmas full of love and happiness and I hope you and those around you can be full of joy, be safe and happy. Merry reading, everyone. I will be back in the new year and for now I leave you with this beautiful edition.
The Night Before Christmas, illustrated byEric Puybaret is a beautiful edition and ever so magical. There’s something haunting and silent about the illustrations; they speak for themselves. The colours are vivid and otherworldly. I can’t imagine a better place to read this than in the living room, with only the soft twinkle of the christmas tree light and a log fire (if you’re lucky). The book also features a three song CD by Peter, Paul and Mary. Such a treat! Merry Christmas everyone.
