Authors and illustrators including Frank Cottrell Boyce and Liz Pichon share the books that are just perfect to settle down with and read in the run up to Christmas – ideally in a cosy jumper, by a massive log fire…
This is a great seasonal feature.
Here’s what SF Said shared:
I often spend the time around Christmas re-reading classic children’s literature. Last year, I re-read all of Alan Garner’s books in chronological order, which was one of the most exciting reading experiences I’ve ever had! This year, I’m thinking of re-reading Susan Cooper’s The Dark Is Rising sequence, which I haven’t looked at for many years, but am looking forward to very much.
I rarely reread books but I adored The Dark Is Rising sequence, as did the class I read it to when I was teaching in the 1980s.
I really don’t think this jacket does it justice:
Wonder if SF Said agrees…
