Farmer Fisher's Russian Christmas. With original accompanying 7 inch vinyl record.
London: G. Whizzard / André Deutsch. This book was chosen as 1976 Children's Book of the Year. It is thought to have been the first picture book on the UK market to include a record (7-inch vinyl disc). The story is a charming rhyme about Farmer Fisher's attempts to visit his cousin in Russia for Christmas. Scarce in this condition and with vinyl. 36 pages. 205 x 295 mm (8 x 11½ inches). Jonathon Coudrille's talents as a multi-instrumentalist mean that he plays and composes for guitar, 7-string banjo, piano, organ and trumpet. His musical interests and influences are principally jazz, Russian and gypsy music.
