Review: Enid Blyton's Christmas Stories

Enid Blyton wrote over 600 books in her lifetime. Such a prolific and beloved author was sure to include a clutch of Christmas stories among this, and this compendium features over 35 of her best.

Featuring a classic cast of kids she does so well, readers will love immersing in the magic and joy of retro Christmasses past.

The book features part-title illustrations by Mark Beech, and stories are peppered with sections of a single tale which takes kids on a journey through a family's Christmas preparations. Not only entertaining, the story reveals how many popular Christmas traditions came to be.

A great one for collectors.
