Good King Wenceslas
Christopher Manson (il). “Good King Wenceslas look’ed out On the Feast of Stephen, When the snow lay round about, Deep & crisp & even . . . .” Almost everybody can sing the first few lines of this popular Christmas carol. But how many know what happens after the good King looks out? It is what the King sees, & his reaction to the sight, that sets the delightful tale in motion: King Wenceslas & his page go to aid a poor man, & in the end they receive a special blessing of their own. In the exquisite hand-painted woodcuts in this book, artist Christopher Manson skillfully renders the medieval setting & characters. Also, biographical notes on John Neale, who set the rhyme to music, & the historical King Wenceslas, along with the music & words to the carol.
