Christmas At Fairacre

The Christmas Mouse, Christmas At Fairacre School, No Holly For Miss Quinn

A delightful Christmas collection of Fairacre tales from the ever-popular Miss Read.

The people of Fairacre celebrate Christmas in a traditional style which has hardly changed over the generations. Children eagerly hang up their stockings, families go to church together and everyone enjoys Christmas cake and other treats of the festive season.

From an unexpected visitor on Christmas Eve in ´The Christmas Mouse´ to an unwanted change of plan in ´No Holly For Miss Quinn´, Miss Read recounts some of the most memorable Christmas events where often, despite best-laid plans, things do not always go as expected.

For heart-warming reading there is no writer to rival Miss Read, and this charming collection of Christmas tales is packed with unforgettable characters, enchanting stories and festive cheer.
