Christmas Stories
Chosen by Lauren Buckland
Published by Macmillan Children’s Books, 2006

Curl up in front of a crackling log fire with this cosy collection of Christmas Stories.

Read about a hearty pirate Christmas party, a naughty princess who refuses to get into the festive spirit, a fighting family brought together as if by magic and many more tales by celebrated authors such as Malorie Blackman, Julia Donaldson, Philip Ardagh and Adele Gèras

Other firm favourites whose stories feature in this book include, Richmal Crompton of Just William fame, Robert Westall, Karen McCombie and Martin Waddell.

Well-known Christmas stories are presented with a humourous twist in Hysterical Herod and the Three Wise Men or Holly and Ivy and Bah Humbug. Read A Happy Christmas for the Ghost or Cobweb Christmas if you like stories with an edge.

Eleven separate stories make up this collection which is ideally suited to children aged 7 and upwards. Double line spacing and plenty of illustration make it an appealing book for independent readers or alternatively an ideal selection of stories to be shared by parents and children during Christmas holiday time.
