A beautifully illustrated new poem, in a gorgeous small format

Carol Ann Duffy's new Christmas poem Pablo Picasso's Noel follows the famous painter as he moves through a small town in the south of France on Christmas Eve, drawing the residents and the festive scenes he encounters. Accompanied by his small dog, he brings delight as he sketches wherever he goes. A wonderful, moving new poem capturing both the magic of Christmas and artistic inspiration, this is an irresistible stocking stuffer.


"Duffy's spellbinding verse, spiced with witty, wintry illustrations, recaptures a magic most of us left behind in childhood." —Maggie Fergusson, author, Intelligent Life
