This beautifully presented volume of classic Christmas stories from around the world is written for children aged 7+ to enjoy reading alone, or for reading aloud in a classroom setting or with family sitting round a log fire!

A mixture of stories from the Christian heritage and more secular tales, these retellings all evoke the true spirit of Christmas around the world. Included are Nativity stories from the Gospels of Luke and Matthew, the stories of Baboushka and Papa Panov, Fir Tree and The Nutcracker. The whole collection sparkles with colourful and detailed artwork from Jane Ray.

Meet the author: Ms Jane Ray

Born in London, Jane studied art and design at Middlesex University. Her main study was ceramics and she didn’t start to illustrate until she left college. Her first published work was a series of greetings cards for Roger la Borde, followed by book jackets, and eventually black and white illustrations for a poetry anthology. Her first full colour picture book was in 1989. Since then Jane has illustrated numerous children’s books, including for Lion Children’s Books, The Lion Classic Christmas Stories, and Stories for a Fragile Planet. Jane regularly exhibits her work at Primavera, Cambridge, and at The Illustration Cupboard, London.
