The Christmas Miracle of Jonathon Toomey

December 9, 2009

Jonathan Tommey was called Mr Gloomy by the village children. He thought Christmas was pish-posh.

Then seven year old Thomas and his widowed mother knock on his door and ask him to carve a set of Christmas figures.

This is a simply worded, beautifully illustrated book which won several awards, including the Kate Greenaway Medal and the Bisto Irish Children’s Book Award.

It’s another on my list of annual reads.

The Christmas Miracle of Jonathon Toomey by Susan Wojciechowski, illustrated by P.J. Lynch. Published by Walker Books.
