Nine of Simenon’s best short stories, beginning with a Christmas mystery in which an otherwise sensible little girl insists that she has seen Father Christmas. No fewer than four of the stories have youthful heroes who bring out the paternal streak in Maigret and help give a delightful freshness to this collection. Translated by Jean Stewart.
