Another Night Before Christmas


Came across this superb new children's book by Carol Anne Duffy & illustrated by Marc Boutavant. Boutavant's painted pictures are blindingly gorgeous & it can only be a matter of time before an ad or short film is made in his style.

I found it in Foyle's down on the South Bank for £10 but it seems to be available in most major bookstores & on Amazon. The interior artwork is even better.
