Meet the Author

Dylan Thomas, born in 1914, began his career as a journalist in his native Swansea, Wales. He then moved to London where he worked in broadcasting and wrote film scripts, prose and drama to earn enough money to enable him to write what he most wanted to—poetry.

He lived colorfully, even recklessly, until his untimely death in New York City in 1953. One of the 20th century’s most treasured writers, Dylan Thomas was a master craftsman of poetic complexity and richly obscure imagery. Thomas’s genius is made clear in this landmark recording through the everlasting gift he has given the word—his voice.

    Living a CHILD'S CHRISTMAS IN WALES

    This lovely, sensitive interpretation of Dylan Thomas's poem is loyal to the original, but adds appropriate dialogue and a wonderland of touching pictures and characters. We have viewed it for the first time and are drawn into the film at every new frame. It seems just right for all ages and makes one quite nostalgic for the days of our youth and those special times with family and friends when small towns and simple acts meant love was every where around us. We recommend it.

    A beautiful story, beautifully illustrated by Hyman

    'A Child's Christmas in Wales' is a timeless story, that seems to isolate a single Christmas in the life of a boy living in an ideal, and sadly, a forgotten age. Thomas perfectly evokes the child-like simplicity of the boy's perceptions with artful poetry, and captures the spirit of the boy's youthful dialogue amongst each other. Further, Trina Schart Hyman's illustrations in this edition integrate seamlessly with the mood of the words. Hyman's work far outstrips the illustrations in other editions of 'Christmas in Wales' that I've perused.

    Pure poetry

    I have the 1985 book of A Child's Christmas in Wales and it, with its wonderful illustrations, is my favorite. Read it aloud as a gift to yourself during the Christmas season. Then, read it to a child or a grandchild or to anyone who will listen. Finally, buy at least ten copies and give to friends! Great Christmas gift.

    Truly awful illustrations. I'm taking this back. The story is lyrical, but is ruined by the pictures.

    This is a very poor Nook adaptation. Very hard to read.

    lovely and beautiful, a favorite Christmas tradition to read aloud to myself.

    My sister gave me this book and the video 'now on DVD' a few years ago. I love it more each year. It is the most wonderful account to read aloud and take you somewhere far away and glorious that you wish you could go...even for a few minutes.
