Two gorgeous Christmas stocking fillers

Two gorgeous Christmas stocking fillers

Published on Monday 3 November 2014

This year, we are pleased to offer two glorious and moving Christmas titles.
The first is The Twelve Poems of Christmas (Volume Six), the latest in our series of Christmas poems chosen and introduced by the Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy. This year’s poems include some old favourites and some spectacular new work (including a new poem by Carol Ann Duffy herself). As she writes, “I hope you find the poems full of surprises, delights and food for thought and discussion around the table.”

Our other Christmas title, The Christmas Wren by Gillian Clarke, is an exquisite contemporary miniature, written for adults and children alike. With colour illustrations throughout, it is a magical tale of the Christmases of a Welsh childhood populated by aunts and uncles, snow and starlight, boxes and baubles. The story was commissioned by the Dylan Thomas Centre to mark the centenary of Dylan Thomas’s birth, and is Gillian Clarke’s response to his classic A Child’s Christmas in Wales.

    Published on Thursday 7 August 2014

    Last year, we published Ten Poems from Wales and this year, it has been the turn of Scotland. It is something of a momentous year in Scotland, one way and another, which has meant that there has been quite a focus on its history (and its future).
