Christmas Reading

An important ritual for my run-up to Christmas is always the re-reading of Dodie Smith's classic The Hundred and One Dalmatians.

Only I lent it to my scatty boss several months ago. She's since moved house. Can she find and return my book before Christmas Eve?? Argh!

Now I come to think of it, she also has my Varjak Paw, The Unadulterated Cat, the Carbonel trilogy, The Sword in the Stone and doubtless others I've forgotten.

On the plus side, of course, it's nice to have a boss who appreciates such things. (My Christmas gift to her is a copy of Lionboy.)

What's your essential Christmas comfort read?
