Roman Ghosts and A Typically English Christmas Aug. 27 2000
By leslie jane harrelson - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I love this book. It is not the Christmas Carol/Night Before Christmas/ Twelve Best-Loved Carols Collection, but a thoughtful, joyful selection of stories that reveal the best about a living Christmas in modern Britain. This book is like a cup of tea on a snowy evening in London as the lamps go on across the road and late shoppers hurry by outside. If you like England and Christmas you will enjoy this book.
Most appropriate for young adults and adults.
I read to my son Dec 24 2012
By El Viejo Topo - Published on
Format: Hardcover
A wonderful collection that I read aloud to my young son before he could read. He's 25 now and still remembers. Do yourself a favor. Do as I did and your child will be grateful too

This is a book aimed at older children. I was aghast. Dec 27 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Most Christmas stories should be heartwarming and enjoyable. This ghastly collection was horrific and depressing. Thank goodness I did not read it to my children. In one story called Christmas Morning there is a drunken father who returns home. In Christmas in the Floods, the grandmother dies and in another short story the snow is coming down like tracer bullets. I will be very leary of any collection by Oxford Press henceforth.

A unique and wonderful collection Jan. 10 2006
By mepoindexter - Published on
Format: Paperback
An absolutly wonderful book filled with a wide assortment of festive tales. Both old and new, happy and sad, heartwarming and bone chilling. The illustrations are fantastic, and I highly recommend this to anyone.
