Christmas with the Savages Paperback

Part of the A Puffin Book series



CHRISTMAS WITH THE SAVAGES by Mary Clive is based on real events and people.

It is the story of a small girl's Christmas holiday in a large Edwardian country house is effortlessly funny.

At Tamerlane Hall, Evelyn finds a horde of children: the gentle Glens, the plaintive Howliboos, and above all, the uninhibited Savages.

They are controlled - or not - by a host of parents, supernumerary Uncles and Aunts, Nannies and nurserymaids.

Evelyn survives the Christmas festivities - just - returning home none too soon!

Seen through the eyes of a prim little eight-year-old, this is an amusing and touching account of a childhood a hundred years ago.
