Horrid Henry Christmas Collection
(three volume set)
With stories about Christmas presents, school plays, eating vegetables, and the Abominable Snowman, jokes, puzzles, games and Henry’s Christmas survival guide, this set of three Horrid Henry books – his Merry Mischief, Cracking Christmas and Jolly Holidays – Will occupy even the most lively children over the festive season.
The Nights Before Christmas
If, like Tony Ross, you love the anticipation of Christmas almost as much as Christmas, you can count down to the big day with this collection of 24 seasonal stories, culminating on Christmas Eve with Elizabeth Harrison’s magical Story of the Christ-Child. Among the ‘tales’ are The Snow Queen, Good King Wenceslas, the Nativity from the King James Bible and the New York Times report of the 1914 Christmas truce – all illustrated in Tony Ross’s inimitable style.
