The Perfect Christmas Present (Paperback)
No two people see anything the same way. No two people see even something so familiar as Christmas the same way. It all depends on your point of view. These verses - honest, sad, dry, touching, happy, angry, funny, tragic, contented, smug, mischievous, complacent, wistful, cocky, baffled, fatalistic, grateful, sceptical - tell us how people feel when Christmas comes, or what they do, or how they manage. They tell it as they see it. The drawings tell it as you may see it. It will give all of us some food for thought.
