Dorothy Wordsworth's Christmas Birthday
Available in Stock
It is 24 December 1799, and Dorothy Wordsworth stands rapt at her gate, looking out onto the frozen landscape of the Lake District. Christmas Day is also her birthday, and a merry celebration is about to begin in the Wordsworths' cottage. This beautiful little book, with striking illustrations by Tom Duxbury, reflects the magic of Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy's enchanting narrative poem.
