Parthenon Entertainment (Firm)
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
In this animated version of Dylan Thomas' classic children's book A Child's Christmas in Wales, a young boy asks an elderly man what Christmas was like when he was a boy. The old man's answer draws us in to a fantastical, colorful, and unexpected world, where mermaids swam in Swansea Bay, wolves roamed the hills and valleys, and hippos trudged through the snowy town. This classic tale of the romantic nature of times gone by will enchant children and families.
