Under Milk Wood

We are not wholly bad or good
Who live our lives under Milk Wood
And Thou, I know, wilt be the first
To see our best side, not our worst.

In this enchanting illustrated adaptation, Cerys Matthews brings Dylan Thomas's beloved classic to new life.

This is a bedtime story like no other; a book to be treasured by many generations; a book for babies and old men alike, for all that are young at heart.

Welcome to the small seaside town of Llareggub.

Here you will find dreamers, workers, singers, sinners, the young, old, blue, bold and a mix of all inbetween.

Here you will meet Captain Cat and Rosie Probert, Mr Organ Morgan and Mrs Ogmore-Pritchard, Nogood
Boyo, Mog and Myfanwy.

Here you will watch a day in their lives play out - from a dark, moonless night to a morning that is busy as bees; from a sunny, slow lulling afternoon to a deep, drifting dusk.
