In 2012, the Dylan Thomas Centre commissioned Gillian Clarke, the National Poet of Wales, to write her own response to Dylan’s ‘A Child’s Christmas in Wales’, to form part of the Dylan Thomas centenary celebrations.
‘The Christmas Wren’ is the result of this. Written for adults and children, it’s a magical tale of the Christmases of a Welsh childhood, populated by aunts and uncles, snow and starlight, boxes and baubles.
This lovely edition is illustrated by Lotte Beatrix Crawford, and contains a bookmark and envelope, making it the perfect gift.
‘The Christmas Wren’ is a masterpiece and is destined to become a classic’ – Carol Ann Duffy.
