Jim's Spectacular Christmas by Emma Thompson

Synopsis

A new Christmas classic from a magical pairing: Dame Emma Thompson and Axel Scheffler.

The story of Jim: a very lucky, very special, very grubby dog, who lives, improbably, in the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Emma Thompson magically weaves the real-life tale of Jim - beloved dog of Sir Henry Cole who created the first Christmas card - with a fantastically warm and heartfelt Christmas romp, brilliantly illustrated by bestselling illustrator, Axel Scheffler.

A Christmas book to treasure, and an adventure filled with high emotion, guilt, redemption, unexpected presents and a life-changing brush with royalty.

About the Author

Dame Emma Thompson is one of the world's most critically lauded and respected talents for her versatility in acting as well as screenwriting. She is the sole artist thus far to have received an Academy Award for both acting (Howards End) and screenwriting (Sense and Sensibility). In June of 2018 she was appointed a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire.

Last May she starred opposite Emma Stone in the hit Disney feature film Cruella. Also in 2021, she shot three additional feature films back-to-back: What's Love Got to Do With It, starring Lily James and Shazad Latif, directed by Shekhar Kapur from a screenplay by Jemima Khan; Good Luck To You, Leo Grande, co-starring Daryl McCormack, based on the original screenplay by British Comedy award-winner Katy Band for director Sophie Hyde; and the film adaptation of Tim Minchin's hit stage musical Matilda, based on the Roald Dahl classic novel, in which she plays the dreaded school headmistress, 'Trunchbull', for director Matthew Warchus.

Thompson starred as the title character in both Nanny McPhee and Nanny McPhee Returns, for both of which she also wrote the screenplay, based on Christiana Brand's Nurse Matilda stories and was an Executive Producer on the latter. She is currently developing a stage musical on the character.

Thompson was commissioned to write the 24th, 25th and 26th tales in the existing collection of Peter Rabbit stories beginning in 2014, the only author since Beatrix Potter to do so.
