Christmas Book of the Day

Enid Blyton's Christmas Tales

Nobody captures the spirit of Christmas like Enid Blyton, and in these stories, she describes the excitement of anticipating gifts, the pleasures of making special food, of singing carols, and coming together to share good times with friends and families. As ever with Blyton, there is mischief and mayhem but good always prevails in the end.


These traditional tales are perfect for younger children being read to and for newly confident readers to read alone. All stories previously appeared in magazines and anthologies from the 40s and 60s. This collection contains the original texts and is unillustrated.

Enid Blyton remains one of Britain's favourite children's authors and her bumper short story collections are perfect for introducing her to the latest generation of readers. (Description from Amazon.co.uk)
