The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey

The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey

A moving Christmas classic which won the Kate Greenaway Medal for illustration. Old, bitter Mr Toomey is completely cut off from the world. He has been cold and hostile since the death of his wife and daughter, far from the warmth of human love. So when the widow McDowell and her son Thomas knock at the old woodcarver’s door one winter day, they receive a frosty reception. But as the small boy watches him work on a wooden nativity scene, a miracle takes place to warm his chilly heart… Illustrated with radiant depth and intensity by master painter P. J. Lynch, this special book is a true celebration of the Christmas spirit.
