Christmas 1993 or Santa's Last Ride

An Absolutely Amazing Christmas Story

LE CAIN, Errol / BRICUSSE, Leslie

In Pittsburgh, I was mugged by thugs. In Boston, stopped for smuggling drugs. And New York's toys were snatched by thieves. 'Twas not the best of Christmas Eves.

LE CAIN, Errol Christmas 1993 or Santa's Last Ride An Absolutely Amazing Christmas Story

Faber & Faber, 1987.

First edition. 4to. Brown cloth with black lettering on the spine in a pictorial dustwrapper. Eleven colour plates and black and white illustrations by Errol Le Cain. A fine copy in a fine dustwrapper, like new.

This sparkling poem tells how wars, bureaucracy and politics make life more and more difficult for Santa Claus ... Leslie Bricusse's witty verses are perfectly matched with Errol Le Cain's delectable illustrations to make a sumptuous picture book (Blurb) In the story Father Christmas has a very "bad night" on 24th December 1993; the elves have trouble with the new gadgetry, the sleigh gets hijacked and to cap it all he gets a parking ticket in London!
Le Bricusse is perhaps better known as a songwriter, having composed many songs for films, including "Goldfinger", sung by Shirley Bassey, and "The Candy Man" for "Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory."
