Following Dorothy Wordsworth's Christmas Birthday, The Christmas Truce and Another Night Before Christmas, Carol Ann Duffy continues her annual tradition of writing a delightful and original Christmas poem. This festive poem is about the Wren Boys of Ireland and their traditional celebration of St. Stephen's Day.
Beautifully illustrated throughout by Dermot Flynn, The Wren-Boys is a covetable little hardback and the perfect stocking-filler.
