Beware of Christmas
Deceitful Christmas Stories and Poems
Published by Diogenes as Achtung Weihnachten
Original Title: . Deceitful Christmas Stories and Poems
A Unique Christmas Book – Typical Tomi Ungerer Whoever wants to celebrate Christmas with Tomi Ungerer has something to look forward to: Tomi Ungerer is always good for a surprise. Christmas with him is guaranteed not to be the bleak, cloying, sugary festival of commerce and boredom. Nevertheless, Tomi Ungerer's ›Beware of Christmas‹ is a splendid house book completely stuffed like a stocking with both deceptive and surprising yet still contemplative stories and poems by authors from around the world: from Charles Dickens and Martin Suter to Doris Dörrie and Urs Widmer. And as a very special gift: the more than 70 colored drawings by Tomi Ungerer, who interprets Christmas dreamily, romantically, jokingly, cheekily, frivolously and subversively.
