A treasure trove of seasonal stories about elves, snowmen, reindeer, festive traditions, and more

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 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 favorites 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.
