Mr Darcy and the Christmas Pudding

Mr Darcy Christmas

Written by Alex Field

New Frontier Publishing

 

The charming Mr Darcy is back!  This time it’s the festive season and Mr Darcy and his friends are enjoying Stir-Up Sunday, making a Christmas pudding in time for the big day.  It’s a wonderful day for all, as long as they can keep the mischievous Mr Collins (the cat) under control.  He has his eye on his own Christmas treat… Maria the mouse.

This is the third book in the Mr Darcy series inspired by the characters of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, written by Alex Field.  It was a treat to illustrate this proud little duck and his friends, especially depicting the new character of Mr Collins, with his spectacles, scarf and slightly battered brown hat.  The book closes with a lovely page describing the English tradition of Stir-Up Sunday.
