A beautiful edition of Brian Wildsmith's enduring Christmas classic.

About the Author

Brian Wildsmith was raised in the mining village of Penistone, near Sheffield. He won a scholarship to the Slade School of Fine Art, where he studied for three years, then spent his National Service teaching music at the Royal Military School of Music. After his time in the Army, he became an art master, but soon gave up teaching to pursue his life-long ambition of becoming a painter. Brian's work is both provocative and stimulating and he has a world-wide reputation as one of the greatest children's illustrators. He is particularly popular in the USA, Europe and Japan. In 1996, as a celebration of Brian's special relationship with Japan, Oxford University Press published Katie and the Dream-Eater written by Her Imperial Highness Princess Takamado of the Japanese Imperial Family. Brian published over 70 books with OUP over his career. Brian died aged 86 on 31 August 2016. He is survived by three children, three grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.

Reviews

`The detail in the pictures means that each turn of the page brings something interesting to talk about. If you are looking for a book to bring more to the Christmas celebration than presents and Santa then A Christmas Story is for you. Enjoy it!' The Bookbag `The beautiful illustrations ... are evocative in a quite different way and they are equally skilful in bringing the story of the birth of Jesus to life.' Julia Eccleshare, The Guardian online `"Embossed with gold, this is a graceful and engaging way to introduce children to what Christmas is really about."' Literary Review
