About the Author

Leon Garfield (1921-1996) is widely regarded as one of the 20th century's finest children's writers. His first novel was the highly-acclaimed Jack Holborn (1964) and this was followed by many exciting, dramatic novels, often with historical themes, ranging from acclaimed retellings of Greek myths to tales of piracy to adventures, romances and supernatural stories set in the 18th ad 19th centuries. He won both the Carnegie Medal and the Whitbread Award.

Format: Hardcover
I can't believe this book is out-of-print! It has all the right ingredients for a really lovely Christmas story: orphans, a dog, and a wonderful ending. I had to make a decided effort to obtain this book, but my search was well-rewarded. However, my desire to purchase it as a special Christmas gift for three children who love Leon Garfield's other work will not be satisfied...'tis unluckily out-of-print! Very un-fair!

I remember reading this book to my much younger brother, he absolutely loved it and would check it out of the library at every opportunity. It is truly a wonderful children's book, and I am amazed that it is out of print. If you get the opportunity to read it, do so! Your children will love it, and so will you.

Each year, I purchase new Christmas books for our home collection, my now adult children and the children of friends. By far, the all time family favorite Christmas book is Leon Garfield's Fair is Fair. It is the one most frequently chosen for reading aloud on Christmas Eve. This year, I was delighted to find additional copies of the book which I had first purchased in 1986. Now each of children have their own copies in their own homes.

Format: Paperback
This is a fabulous Christmas story for children of all ages! I would recommend the hardback version (if you can find it) and read it to your children & grandchildren every year as a Christmas tradition! It has the intrigue & mystery of Christmas magic, coupled with a bit of English charm, rich text, & lovely illustrations. But it's really about characteristics that are rare these days, such as integrity, honesty, truthfulness, & courage!
