Charming and Beautifully Illustrated
The Thirteen Days of Christmas by Jenny Overton is a charming little story, beautifully illustrated by Shirley Hughes.
Annaple tries hard to look after her father, two brothers and sister following the death of their mother. They see her as a terrible nag who cannot cook. Her brothers decide that she really needs to get married. Francis Vere wants to marry her but Annaple thinks he is dull and unimaginative. Francis decides he has twelve days of Christmas to come up with some unusual gifts. What will he choose? Will Annaple decide that he is a desirable suitor?
A charming little story that can easily be read in an evening. Just perfect for the run up to Christmas.
