The Foxís Tale

The First Christmas

by Nick Butterworth & Mick Inkpen


Price: £5.99
Publisher:Candle Books imprint of Lion Hudson
Published:30 August 2012
A lot of people will immediately recognise this book as itís a Butterworth and Inkpen classic that was formerly part of the Animal Tales series and so has been around in one shape or form since 1988. However this larger style format makes this wonderful book a great addition for any Sunday school leader or teacher who wants to share this book with a classroom or group of children. The beautiful illustrations are reproduced in a larger size and the font is giant - which is great because I find large font so much easier to read upside down or from the side when holding a book facing the children!- it also means that even from a distance young readers could if they aren't entranced by the story and illustrations follow along with the reading. Iím so glad to see such a wonderful classic title back out and available for new generations to enjoy too.
