The Oxford Book of Christmas Stories Reviews
Mir gefällt das Buch sehr gut. Die Geschichten sind immer wieder neu und anders. Auch anders, als man es aus Deutschland kennt.
A wonderful collection that I read aloud to my young son before he could read. He's 25 now and still remembers. Do yourself a favor. Do as I did and your child will be grateful too
I love this book. It is not the Christmas Carol/Night Before Christmas/ Twelve Best-Loved Carols Collection, but a thoughtful, joyful selection of stories that reveal the best about a living Christmas in modern Britain. This book is like a cup of tea on a snowy evening in London as the lamps go on across the road and late shoppers hurry by outside. If you like England and Christmas you will enjoy this book.Most appropriate for young adults and adults.
An absolutly wonderful book filled with a wide assortment of festive tales. Both old and new, happy and sad, heartwarming and bone chilling. The illustrations are fantastic, and I highly recommend this to anyone.
