The King of Christmas

Carol Ann Duffy, Illus. Lara Hawthorne

‘Bored, the Baron mooched in his Manor/ on the brink of belligerence. Life lacked glamour/ and Christmas was coming.’ To liven things up, they appoint a peasant (‘anarchic fellow/ in pantaloons of violent yellow’) to be the King of Christmas. Illustrated by Lara Hawthorne.
