A literary and emotional feat... Tidings is an eloquent reminder that life is hard, kindness is all and that the Christmas story goes deep... A moving poem just asking to be read aloud, with different people playing each part - angel, child, tramp, fox and helper - this Christmas. -- Kate Kellaway * Observer *
[This] exquisite-looking hardback is a lovely reminder of seasonal magic. -- Joanne Finney * Good Housekeeping, Book of the Year *
It's not just a special seasonal book, it is a real challenge to both commercialized and sentimental versions of Christmas. * Universe *
Magical... a literary and emotional feat (elegantly illustrated in red, white, black and gold) .Padel is too wise to allow sentimentality to tug at her sleeve. What she does, brilliantly, is to see off the sense of resignation that can set in at Christmas. Tidings is an eloquent reminder that life is hard, kindness is all and that the Christmas story goes deep. No sermon, this, but a moving poem just asking to be read aloud. -- Kate Kellaway * Observer *
A gorgeous Christmas poem...meant to be read aloud, explores what Christmas might mean to us today -- not just a time of celebration but also of conflict and loneliness. Lyrically beautiful, and accompanied by gorgeous illustrations by Sarah Young. * Stylist *
