Christmas Eve Ghost - My Book CornerThe reputation of Shirley Hughes as a creator of exquisitely illustrated picture books, combined with the ability to tell a story in a manner that children connect with, is sooo well established. Her charm and warmth fit perfectly with this Christmas themed book – The Christmas Eve Ghost.

This is a touching story of a young family who have moved to Liverpool, UK during the 1930s. Recently moved from Wales, where their Da was killed in a mining accident, Ma is now the sole carer of Bronwen and Dylan and works hard to make ends meet.

Accompanied by beautiful framed illustrations this becomes a story of warmth and acceptance as the children accept kindness from an unexpected source.

Shirley’s narrative and illustrations evocatively portray an era when times were hard, and many families lived in poverty.

The Christmas Eve Ghost has a more detailed, longer narrative than many picture books – making this one perfect for emerging readers and listeners who are ready for a story with a little more depth.
