Description
(First Edition, Signed Bookplate) (A New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Children's Book of the Year and an ALA Notable Children's Book) This pairing of Chris Raschka's stylized paintings on torn, handmade paper with poet Dylan Thomas's beloved prose work was widely hailed when it first appeared in 2004. The short story, for readers and listeners of all ages, is Thomas's own blending of his 1945 BBC broadcast "Memories of Christmas" and his 1947 article "Conversation About Christmas," and is brought to life in bold, evocative brushstrokes of colored inks and gouache. We are offering this 2013 edition, with silver sparkles of snow on the laminated cover, as a first edition with a bookplate signed by Raschka.

"Raschka's illustrations will surely enhance children's enjoyment of this nostalgic, bittersweet memoir. Executed in ink, torn paper, and gouache on sensuously textured paper, they are full of tiny details that beg for closer inspection.... Raschka ... finds the universal elements that a contemporary child can relate to—the eccentric aunts, the joy of pretending to smoke candy cigarettes, the classification of gifts into 'Useful Presents' and 'Useless Presents.' This is a handsome book."—School Library Journal
