The Christmas Ship
The artwork in this book is absolutely incredible. I can only find a few books by Dean Morrissey as both writer and illustrator but many more where he illustrated them. It is a pity because both this and Ship Of Dreams are both amazing books. The artwork in this book is wonderful. It is the story of Sam Thatcher, a toy maker in a small town. But on Christmas Eve his shop is condemned. Then Father Christmas stops by and asks Sam for a favour - he needs Sam to deliver the presents in this town because of a great storm. This book is a great story with marvellous artwork.
