This is a collection of Michael's existing Christmas books (The Best Christmas Present in the World, On Angel Wings and The Best of Times) with a new story, The Goose is Getting Fat. You can curl up by the fireside and let Michael Morpurgo envelop you in stories of faraway lands and unexpected adventures. The Best Christmas Present in the World - A mysterious letter in a secret drawer brings one night in the Great War vividly to life. Writing home from the front, a soldier has an incredible story to tell. On Angel Wings - A singing of wings, a glorious light, and a sudden beacon of brightness? It can only mean - can it really? - a visit from the Angel Gabriel himself ... The Best of Times - When the Prince and Princess marry, joy rings out across the land. But all too soon it fades away and a shadow hangs over the royal palace. As Christmas approaches, Prince Frederico must find a way to warm his new bride's aching heart. Ages 3+
