Dylan Thomas’s classic account of his childhood Christmases, with full colour illustrations by Peter Bailey. The special gift edition for Thomas’s centenary now in paperback, with a beautiful gold-foiled cover.

All the Christmases roll down toward the two-tongued sea, like a cold and headlong moon bundling down the sky that was our street…

Dylan Thomas’s lyrical account of his childhood Christmases in a small Welsh town, featuring wolves, bears, hippos and Mrs Prothero’s cat, has become deservedly famous. This re-designed edition celebrates the centenary of his birth, and features full colour artwork from illustrator Peter Bailey.

A beautiful gift edition of a classic work from one of Britain’s best-loved writers, this is the perfect Christmas present for young readers building their own childhood Christmas memories.
