Do you read christmas themed books this time of the year? have you heard of noel streatfeild? @viragopress
lately published noel streatfeild’s christmas stories. originally written for annuals, magazines and the radio from the 1940s-60s, these stories have never been collected before. i am looking forward to reading these to my little sigrid when she is a bit older.
we arrived back in london today from new york and i quickly took this photo. i liked it because sigrid is sneaking in the background looking as angelic as ever.
about the author.
