    FREE READ » Wenceslas WenceslasThis is a retelling of the carol ‘Good King Wenceslas’ and is heartwarmingly festiveAn elaborate feast has been prepared by the kings cook and the descriptive language Duffy uses is just excellent you can picture it all The hall is filled with the smell of food and the sounds of merriment When the king looks outside he spots a peasant shivering in the snow and invites him to join the feast “and carved him a sumptuous slice of Christmas pie as prayers hope you would and I”
