With Illustrations by FRITZ EICHENBERG

This humorous, sad, magical account from Dylan Thomas's childhood and a Christmas Day in a small Welsh town has become a modern classic. Now, Fritz Eichenberg, one of the great book illustrators of our time, has done five memorable wood engravings for this edition. Other books he has illustrated range from Swift to Dostoievsky.

"A finer work of art—more humorous, more perspicacious, more touching, more wise—than Dickens's A Christmas Carol, it should become as much a tradition of Christmas as the wreath on the door and the tree in the window."—The Argus

. . the language is enchanting and the poetry shines with an unearthly radiance." —The New York Times
